The Heat is on

… is the title of one of my imaginaries today and tomorrow on display during the Baardskeerdersbos Art Route in Baardskeerdersbos, Western Cape, South Africa. At the B’Bos Art Gallery.

The imaginary is based on one of the giant gargoyles of sculptor Ulrich Riek from Napier.

Clockwork

South African sculptor Jan Vingerhoets has his background in the IT (Silicon Valley, USA, I believe) and that might be the reason that he went back to a kind of ‘primitive looking ornamental work’. His clockwork (at this moment exhibited in Art Thirst in Hermanus) is a good example of ‘ornate simplicity’. Photo made in his workshop in Baardskeerdersbos a few weeks ago.
