“Fairy tales are not medicine for the sick world in which we live. They are indications and traces of what we were and can become. They are literally alternative worlds in which ethics and morals in our so-called real worlds are tested. It is through our imaginations and imaginative worlds that we create sound strategies not only for survival but also for the endowment of enlightenment. The small people must learn to be smart and outsmart the villains of the earth.” – quote written in my diary but I forgot to write down the source 😉
My solo exhibition “Eugenics” is coming to an end soon.
Which makes me wonder what is the future for our boys in this country after they finish school?
So besides these new laws, there is also the uncertainty and fears surrounding A.I. For example our eldest son currently dreams of becoming a programmer after he finish school, and his teacher told him recently that he should reconsider his career dream, since A.I will replace programmers in the future. What? Why not teach the children a programming language right now- giving them hope- and not make them feel that all is lost?
Anyway, I will leave you with the following quote: ” The man who made a mistake not only refused to unmake it but decided to go on making it. But in this, he made yet another most amusing mistake, which was the beginning of all Eugenics. ” – G.K Chesterton from his book Eugenics and other evils.
Last night (16 May 2023) was the opening night of my solo exhibition “Eugenics” at gallery .MContemporary in Sydney Australia.
A heartfelt thanks to everyone who cared about attending the opening yesterday. ❤ Thank you all working behind the scenes for making it happen. Also thank you for acquiring some of my work. Much appreciated.

Wish I was there, but in the meantime I celebrated with coffee and smores – South African time 😉
