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 😉 – Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Studio musings

I don’t know about you, but the more the real world freaks me out, the more I escape to a fantasy one, equipped with fantasy characters of my own making. So at the end of 2020 I started working on a series of altered photos once again. I say once again because I’ve been altering vintage photos since 2014 – for example:

Title: It’s contagious Medium: Vintage photograph, cotton thread and rubber 59 x 44 cm 2014/2015

So while I was waiting for the big reprints of vintage photos which I am currently working with (looking forward to share that journey with you soon). I also did smaller ones, some inspired by my mother-in-law whom we visited in December. I took a walk down in memory lane with her one evening going through a drawer full of photos. Some of the photographs were slightly damaged which she gifted to me, for example the one below.

I am happy to announce that this series found a home in Phoenix Arizona and will hopefully reach their destination soon with the help of Jetlog Logistics.

In other news: our eldest son is turning 13 on the 23rd of January. I asked him how does it feel to be a teenager. He said it feels okay except for some “symptoms” he is currently experiencing 😉

What a joy to be the mother of this child o’ mine.

Where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Ooh, oh, where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Oh, where do we go now?
Where do we go? (Sweet child)
Where do we go now?
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay
Where do we go now?
Ah, ah

Last but not least….The group exhibition: “No holds barred” at RK Contemporary gallery is coming to an end on the 31st of January. Feel free to check it out if you get a chance.

When risk

To remain tight

in a bud

was more painful

than the risk

it took

to blossom”
