EUCATASTROPHE – the opening: a video

Art portfolio- my work

I am happy that I was able to upgrade my website recently, and now WordPress allow me to upload videos!

So without further adieu: herewith a video (courtesy of the gallery). Thinking back with fond memories to the opening of EUCATASTROPHE on Saturday the 17th of April 2021 at Deepest Darkest Art Gallery in Cape Town.

ENJOY πŸ˜‰ – Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

the making of “a walk in the park”…

Oh hi! Just taking “a walk in the park” today with a hot-air -balloon πŸ˜‰

How are you?

Educational Toy (cotton thread, fiber filling and rubber SOLD

I started working on ‘A walk in the park” exhibition in November 2019, after I received an invitation from the Pretoria Art Association to have a small solo in their Black Box area.

but it was only in January that I started making the ’embroidered rubber balloons” for the show.

At first I was worried that these balloons was looking too much like those whoopee cushions! Do you remember those?

Anyway, I reassured myself that that was just my inner critic talking trying to spoil the fun I was having in the studio….

and then the pandemic happened!

So “A walk in the park” was meant to open on the 29th of May 2020, but with lockdown and everything, the show got postponed until further notice, and eventually the Art Association suggested we open it in September 2020.

Hare-raising thoughts 2019 Cotton thread, fiber filling and rubber SOLD

Postpone it for so long?! What about all the bills to pay? That was indeed a hare-raising thought, and after careful consideration and a talk to one of my dear collectors I decided to host this exhibition myself. Directly from my studio for a change!

Rich Bitch 2020 Cotton thread, fiber filling and rubber SOLD

because I am fortunate and lucky to ‘know’ some rich bitches right! πŸ˜‰

Just kidding :-p
