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.

We are still working on the decoration of our Private Gallery. In the meantime however, thanks to marketing abroad, tourists are popping in (on appointment!!!). Yvonne sold this morning some jewellery pieces. And me? Just sold the natural whirlpool in the ‘Klip Rivier’ (Stone River) in Napier to a European customer.

reach outer spaces
I delve inward
