The words: “Blah Blah Blah” embroidered onto the vase was initially inspired by the title of a song performed by Dutch DJ and record producer Armin van Buuren. For Taute music in particular is not just a muse but also a thread that binds humanity together. With that said: the word Blah also refers to that feeling of an expression of mild frustration; and also when you are having the “blahs”, refers to a feeling of physical uneasiness, general discomfort, or mild depression. So please don’t let the threads that bind us give you the “blahs” (from my artist statement)

I don’t know about you, but September was really testing my patience. I had a hard time with the South African postal services trying to send work overseas, which in the end didn’t reach is destination. So better luck next time. But October is here and promises to be a busy month as well as a beautiful one!
I am excited to announce that I started working on a commission last month and it is progressing slowly but surely:
The only request from the patron is that “Size matters!”
That’s when I decided that it will be the title of the work as well. 😉
So dear friends due to this commission, I will not be hosting a studio exhibition this month, but I do have those works that didn’t leave the country, available directly from my studio, until the 10th of October. If you’d like to receive a pdf file, let me know via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For all of you in the Southern Hemisphere…I hope that you are experiencing a fine Winter and not one of ‘discontent’, because:

I am excited to inform you that the Millenium Gallery will be presenting my work at this years Turbine Art Fair (from 11 to 14 July 2019) in Johannesburg, and I will be attending!! I am looking forward and do hope to see and meet some of you there, but for those who can’t make it…feel free to contact me and I will forward a ‘digital catalog’ to you.
A vigour of hybrids
I recently completed a ‘vigour’ of hybrids, and they are on their way to a new home. Many thanks to the patron of the arts!
Work in progress
Other news: I am currently preparing for a group exhibition in August and a small solo exhibition in Spring…but more on that later. Stay warm, keep well, until next time…
I’ll leave you with another quote by Mr Steinbeck:
