Freedom.

Mid-2014 I was invited by the Association April the 25th (A25A) and Artever  (Art Association of Amadora) in Portugal to submit a photographic work on the theme of Freedom. I submitted a digital manipulation of two photographs I had taken earlier - one in Simon's Town of a mother and her little boy, and one of our South African flag (standing rather forlornly in the middle of nowhere - well, in a field between Napier and Bredasdorp ...).

































No U-turn - Freedom is Not the End of the Journey (digital manipulation).

It is now part of a panel of 40 photographs by 40 different artists from all over the world, and is exhibited in Vila Franca de Xira in Portugal.

The Discussion.

She who speaks but cannot see, she who sees but cannot speak ...

































The discussion (linocut, coloured ink, collage, stitching).

2015.

Snous has had her stitches out and recovered very well from her nightmare encounter with a German Shepherd,

So well, in fact, that she has insisted to wish you all A Very Happy 2015 - filled with love and tummy-tickles and good health. May your bowl always remain filled with the most delectable of treats.
xxx Snous (and Anairam)

More experiments.



























I am keen to explore the concept of mazes and labyrinths a little more ... etching? textiles? Perhaps an installation or a performance? Hmmmmm, my mind is awash with possibilities ...
