Remember, remember it’s November!….

Studio news

Yip, can you believe it! November is here already!

This month started on a high note, with lots of celebrations during the past weekend:

work in progress….

from Halloween, All Saint’s day, The day of the Dead and of course the Rugby World Cup.

I find it fascinating how sport can unite a Nation like it did this weekend.

“Sy is n bok vir sports/ She’s game” 2014 Cotton thread, batting and rubber (Private Collection)

Anyway from sport and celebrations to studio news….As you can see from “She’s game”, my fascination with hybrids comes a long way.

Talking about hybrids….

“Earn your stripes” 2019 Cotton thread, batting and rubber

…a vigor of hybrids, like “Earn your stripes” made their way to Tasmania and will be included in a group exhibition opening at the end of November, curated by Nicole O’Loughlin. I will post more info about this soon.

Also:

“Lovebirds” detail embroidered rubber, altered vintage photo 2019

This little bird, her lover and friends are heading off to Knysna for a group exhibition late November… watch this space 😉

I wish you a marvelous week ahead.

Until next time. xxx

Her dark side detail 1

“Jung believed that the shadow is the seat of creativity.  And it makes perfect sense that if creativity entails a certain freedom from our customary constraints in thought and feeling then giving ourselves the license to create also involves granting ourselves the privilege to inwardly explore and outwardly express the darker side of our latent tendencies and impulses.”
