A lot has been happening and is in the process of happening.  I am delighted to invite you to two group shows in which I am participating.  See invite above; and then this one:

So in December I will find myself in some good company approximately 1400 Km’s apart! If you are in Cape Town or Johannesburg area, please pop in!

Apart from this I am also preparing for my solo show

at next year’s KKNK (Klein Karoo National Arts Festival) but more about this at a later stage!

Otherwise I’ve been reading Zoo City by Lauren Beukes, which was very appropriate in lieu to the Zoo exhibition.  I can highly recommend this book for your reading pleasure.

Currently I am reading The Sistine Secrets.  I am only on page 49 but  it is captivating to say the least!  The Vatican is a very strange place. In contrast to this I am listening to the music of Erik Satie. Why I say contrast is because apparently he started his own church of which he was the sole member, compared to the Vatican!

I am also listening to Diamanda Galas again, and in the cd cover I read that

 “On December 10, 1989 Diamanda Galas was arrested with ACT UP at St. Patrick’s Cathedral for disorderly conduct, disrupting a religious service, resisting arrest, and criminal trespass.  On October 12-13, 1990 she performed the Plague Mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the second largest cathedral in the world……”

Animals, The Church and Superheroes -truely a Mash-up-  is what I should have titled this blog, but anyway

I am browsing through my husbands marvel comic books since a dear friend’s 40th birthday is around the corner and he requested a superhero on rubber!

Back to work and I’ll leave you with this beautiful quote:

“Artistic Geniuses often produced their greatest works when they incorporated concealed meanings in their masterpieces.”
