Inside SA Art

Studio news/blog

Good morning!

A friend and fellow artist (who also teaches art at school level) asked me to be interviewed for her new channel/series about South African Artists, which she started recently, to encourage her learners to connect with other artists who are not yet written about in the syllabus. I am looking forward to see how this series develops, and I am honoured to be part of this journey!

..I quote:

When these children learn about your process, inspiration, and the intentions of your art, they learn to make better art and they deepen their appreciation for what you do. This effort serves to develop our heritage and it certainly creates legacy. You were inspired by artists to do what you do now and those artists that inspired you became cultural icons because they became cannon through being part of the educational curriculum. This process now continues with you.

How cool is that.

Anyway without further adieu:

if you have any advice for future interviews, feel free to let me know what you think….

wishing you a wonderful week ahead. xxx

Also: A key message of 12 Monkeys (The movie) is that the past is fixed and can’t actually be changed. We can only prevent for the future.

AND the study of ‘great apes’ in their own environment and in captivity has changed attitudes to anthropomorphism.
