Bosch in Africa

Art portfolio- my work, Studio news

I’m also participating in another exciting group exhibition: Bosch in Africa! Curated by Sandra Hanekom, and inspired by Hieronymus Bosch of course.

I’ve made 6 small pieces for this show.  I like to refer to these as my:

“Bosch in Afrikaans” series.

They were inspired by the pages in a lovely book called: Kinderland.

I used some pages which made reference to witches and decided to embroider some Boschian characters on rubber.

All the above have been framed for the exhibition, but unfortunately I don’t have photos of it except for this one: (which should give you an idea of what they look like now)
