Chris Tugwells paintings hang in many important private and corporate collections, both here and abroad . He is today recognised as an artist of international standard. Best known for his abilities to capture the brilliant light of the sun-drenched Transvaal highveld, the atmosphere of the old tobacco farms of the Magaliesburg district, his work reveals an intense awareness and reponsiveness to the vast and spacious African veld, and shows a sensitive observation of cloud formations and the influence of the sky on the landscape. The subtle and poetic moods of nature interest him more than the dramatic and highly colorful, and it is his delicate rendering of these moods that has become a hallmark of his style.
