Studio update- Winter 2021

Art portfolio- my work

Whew, July was a strange month: from billionaires in space, to looting in South Africa and more close to home = a broken appliances as well as a traffic fine. Let’s hope August will be peaceful, calm, and things working out without rushing;-)

work in progress

August is my birthday month and I am happy to say that some of my older work will be included in an upcoming exhibition which opens on the same day as my birthday! In celebration I will be giving away this ‘Chocolate bunny” from this exhibition to one lucky person.

This group exhibition is called: Thread(ed): Interlacing womxn in the 21st century, to be held at the Association of Arts, Pretoria from 13 August – 4 September 2021

More details to follow later

But here is a sneak peek:

I watched a beautiful movie on Netflix called: It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, which was inspired by an article featured in Esquire about Mr Rogers. After I watched the movie, I read the article, and I would like to share the following quote which really moved me with you:

Anyway, back to studio news:

The KKNK festival virtual exhibition Amplifica is still showing until the end of August. Here is a short video featuring the curator Dineke van der Walt talking about it:

and here is a video we made in my studio with the works in question:

That’s a wrap for now. Keep calm and keep warm until next time….

October 2020 studio news

Art portfolio- my work, Studio news/blog

I don’t know about you, but September was really testing my patience. I had a hard time with the South African postal services trying to send work overseas, which in the end didn’t reach is destination. So better luck next time. But October is here and promises to be a busy month as well as a beautiful one!

I am excited to announce that I started working on a commission last month and it is progressing slowly but surely:

Yep, that’s me (wearing a wig as usual) in front of the work just to give you an indication of the size!

The only request from the patron is that “Size matters!”

That’s when I decided that it will be the title of the work as well. 😉

note to self

So dear friends due to this commission, I will not be hosting a studio exhibition this month, but I do have those works that didn’t leave the country, available directly from my studio, until the 10th of October. If you’d like to receive a pdf file, let me know via email: hannalie.t@gmail.com.
