This piece dates back to 2017, when I started hearing about the oceans warming up and coral reefs dying.
Now in 2022, according NASA “…Yes, the ocean is continuing to warm. … To date, the ocean contains 90 percent of the heat from human-induced global warming, and the year 2020 was the warmest ever measured for the global ocean.
And today I heard about the sewage problem at the coast of Kwazulu-Natal and I hang my head in shame on behalf of the human race.
I am delighted to inform you that I am participating alongside some amazing artists in a group exhibition titled: “Yarn” which opened on Sunday the 21st at IS Art in Franschoek, Western Cape, South Africa. If you missed the opening, don’t despair, the exhibition runs until the 11th of November 2018.
