Dear Friends, collueges and fellow bloggers…

Today I am very happy to share the following news with you:

  1. My exhibition: “Stink Afrikaners” from earlier this year at the Woordfees 2016 has been nominated for a Kyknet Fiesta Award for best Visual Art production at an Art festival!

Medium: Cotton thread, wood and rubber

This is a ‘breathtaking’ moment for me since it is the 3rd time that my work is nominated for this award. (previous years 2012 for “Skeidingsangs” and 2015 for “Rubber ever After”!)

What an honour to be nominated amongst fellow artists like Alex Hamilton, Amanda Botha and Lien Botha!

Congratulations to all - (artwork by Roger Young)

Best wishes
