Hermanus FynArts

Every year there is this art festival in Hermanus, Western Cape, South Africa. Plenty of sculptures along the Cliff Path but not this year. It’s a meager outdoor exhibition but the few sculptures I saw are interesting. The event, including some concerts, workshops, etc. started last Thursday and ends this Sunday 18 June.

More worthwhile is to visit the different art galleries. Their level has gone up significantly in the past few years and some of them can match themselves with the best in South Africa and abroad. There are 11 of them (if I’m not mistaken) and all within walking distance. Four artists from my village have work on display in Van Rossouw Frans Mulder), Originals (Ulrich Riek), Hermanus Gallery (Yvonne de Wit) and Walker Bay Gallery (me).

Here a few images of the outdoor event.

 

Can you see and count?

There are many hidden faces/heads (animals, humans and creatures alike) in this imaginary.

The sculpture of the rabbit is made by Ulrich Riek from Napier, Western Cape, South Africa.

From 26 November to mid January 2017 more of my work exhibited in Breytenbach Gallery in Wellington (‘Angels & Demons’). Late January/beginning February exhibition in Cape Palette in George.

Going Deep 7 (2 pictures)

I’m still engaged in the completion of these two pictures. In the previous 6 posts you have seen some developments but still I’m not satisfied. For the moment I leave them as they are but I’ll work on these imaginaries again sometime in the future.

The images are based on a sculpture of artist Ulrich Riek from Napier in South Africa. His work is exhibited in the Southern Wright Gallery in Cape Agulhas; near the Southernmost point of the African Continent.
