A visual journey……
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:
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. 😉
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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until we speak again….. xxx
I recently completed a commission for a very special lady. Her only request was that the work should be ‘doll’ like. After questioning her about herself, I realised that she love succulents and the colour yellow. She also have beautiful curly blondish hair. And that’s how I decided I’ll do the above piece for her.
After she received the work she sent me this photograph of when she was a little girl:
Such beautiful yellow dresses! I just love coincidences like these!
I’m not used to doing portraits of other people …..but recently I received the exciting challenge from Arts Patron Stuart Trent (read more about him here) to do his portrait.
Since I don’t know Stuart on a personal level…
I decided to make a grey-scale embroidered portrait based on the classical sculpture busts.
It also reminded me of a chess piece.
