My work featured in The Sunday Times yesterday.
A big thank you to everyone involved, and to Knysna Fine Art gallery for letting me know.
Hope you all have a fantastic week ahead!
For all of you in the Southern Hemisphere…I hope that you are experiencing a fine Winter and not one of ‘discontent’, because:
“We can shoot rockets into space but we can’t cure anger or discontent”. John Steinbeck – Winter of our Discontent
I am excited to inform you that the Millenium Gallery will be presenting my work at this years Turbine Art Fair (from 11 to 14 July 2019) in Johannesburg, and I will be attending!! I am looking forward and do hope to see and meet some of you there, but for those who can’t make it…feel free to contact me and I will forward a ‘digital catalog’ to you.
I recently completed a ‘vigour’ of hybrids, and they are on their way to a new home. Many thanks to the patron of the arts!
Other news: I am currently preparing for a group exhibition in August and a small solo exhibition in Spring…but more on that later. Stay warm, keep well, until next time…
I’ll leave you with another quote by Mr Steinbeck:
“A little hope, even hopeless hope, never hurt anybody.”
Perhaps the ‘doll’ actually inhabits my “narrative of origins” in art – just as felt and grease inhabit Joseph Beuys’s?
This is a group photo of my grandparents. This photo was taken on the wedding day of my paternal grandmother with her 3rd husband (middle). With them, on either side are my maternal grandparents.
I believe my grandmother introduced me to fairytales.
My grandmother age 16, and a note she wrote :
