Four of my images selected for the exhibition “The invisible visible” in Oslo, Norway, for the VI International Week of Arts Education by UNESCO. One for the four is “African Feet”. The others are the ones of an informal shop in an informal settlement and two of ‘The Shepherd of Standord’. Exhibition runs from 22 May to 1 June. Plus there is a virtual one on a website (just have to figure out which one).
During the opening of Private Gallery (Easter Sunday) one of the invited guests brought a fashion designer from Cape Town with her. This fashion designer became inspired by this landscape. A few days after a deal was made. Will keep you updated.
In addition to serving as spouts for water in ancients times, the gaping mouths of gargoyles evoked the fearsome destructiveness of these legendary beasts, reminding the laity of the need for the (Roman Catholic) church’s protection. A previous owner of this house added them to keep evil spirits out.
Original photographs in black and white. Did some reduction so that only the outlines were left. Next I added textures and elements from other pictures plus coloring in-painting and drawing. The end result is what I call ‘photo-graphics’.
Only 1 framed print (60 x 40 cm) per image available at Private Gallery in Napier, Western Cape, South Africa.
