In South-Easter, Tretchikoff masterfully captures the essence of the prevailing summer wind known as the 'Cape Doctor' in Cape Town. This wind, notorious for swirling dust and debris, is brought to life in the artwork with a dynamic and chaotic energy. The artist's keen observation and attention to detail allow viewers to feel the gusts of wind and imagine the swirling dust as it dances through the air.

However, beyond the mere depiction of a natural phenomenon, Tretchikoff adds a layer of philosophic irony to the artwork. Through the imagery of a man's all-important matter of the moment becoming a mere piece of paper, the artist invites contemplation on the transient nature of human concerns in the face of elemental forces. The playfulness of the wind, as it whimsically carries away what was once significant, serves as a reminder of the impermanence of human endeavors.

"South-Easter" becomes a metaphor for life's unpredictability and the fleeting nature of our experiences. It prompts viewers to reflect on the contrast between our short-term perspectives and the enduring power of nature. The artwork encapsulates a moment of philosophical reflection, inviting us to consider our place in the grand scheme of things and the resilience required to navigate life's ever-changing winds.
