For the love of art

Art portfolio- my work

I am delighted to share the following news with you:



Yes, I am a finalist in the ‘For the love of art competition”!  So for those in the Gauteng region – you are welcome to attend the prize giving ceremony tomorrow night at 6pm.  Unfortunately I wont be able to attend, but will be there in spirit.

This is the work I entered:

"She's game/ Sy is n bok vir sports" Embroidery on rubber/inner tube 565 x 390 mm

“She’s game/ Sy is n bok vir sports” Embroidery on rubber/inner tube 565 x 390 mm

Now a couple of friends of mine are very anti-art competitions.  I’ve had some interesting conversations about this on facebook.   This year I decided to go for every opportunity that presents itself – who knows what will come from it.

I read this lovely speech by Marlene Dumas see here.

Although her situation is a bit different because she was presented with this prize and did not enter a competition; I still love her words and insight.

How do you feel about competitions?
