How Abra-Cadaver saved the Wicked Cat

Art portfolio- my work

Once upon a time (round-a-bout 2016), in Stellenbosch, South Africa; Abra-Cadaver the Stink Afrikaner:

Abra-Cadaver-Stink Afrikaner 2016- exhibited during the Woordfees in Stellenbosch (destroyed)

was waiting and thinking, until “Minutes to Midnight” in 2018:

Minutes to midnight 2018 (destroyed)

meanwhile- “it is hard to take a nap with a dragon on your lap”.

“It is hard to take a nap with a dragon on your lap 2021 Photographic print on canvas, thread and rubber (destroyed)

which of course did not work out, but luckily today, the cat can finally say to Abra-Cadaver:

“Thank you for saving my life, said the wicked cat” 2022 Photographic print on board, thread and rubber

Thank you for saving my life said the wicked cat 2022 Photographic print on board, thread, doillies and rubber 122 x 85 cm framed

The end.

Just a quick reminder that my studio will be open to the public for two days only when I will host a ‘group exhibition’ titled “Dagdromer”:

Invitation

This will most likely be the first and last time I will host an exhibition as part of the Hessequa Art Route. In the future I will only accommodate studio visits per appointment only. πŸ˜‰

Art portfolio- my work

This piece dates back to 2017, when I started hearing about the oceans warming up and coral reefs dying.

Now in 2022, according NASA “…​Yes,Β the ocean is continuing to warm. … To date, the ocean contains 90 percent of the heat from human-induced global warming, and the year 2020 was the warmest ever measured for the global ocean.

And today I heard about the sewage problem at the coast of Kwazulu-Natal and I hang my head in shame on behalf of the human race.

This is not acceptable, and it makes me extremely sad and mad.

On that note I present to you: “IN WARM WATER” which I should probably rename to : ‘IN HOT WATER’ because by the looks of it we ARE IN TROUBLE’.
