See below new collage works, some of which are currently included in an exhibition called Flesh at The Art Business (Contemporary Art Gallery and Consultancy) in Piketberg. The group show opened Saturday evening and is on view till 6 August 2012.
Piketberg is a small town in the countryside of the Western Cape, about an hour’s drive from Cape Town. Set on the mountainside in a quiet farming community, the town has a lovely quaintness to it. I was surprised to meet the number of artists living and working there. The opening night was great – the ‘platteland’ knows hows to throw a party! One might think that the theme Flesh is too controversial for a small town show, but it was well received. The show is R rated, and people were warned beforehand not to bring children along (my works are some of the tamer pieces on show).
