A Day Measured in Objects.

Another zine. At 15 random times during the say I decided to note the time and the object I was working with at that time. Quite an interesting exercise. I then made drawings (black pen) and photocopied them onto coloured paper to make the zine. It has a 5-hole sewn binding.

Some of the pages in the zine:



Other objects were: a toothbrush, a reel of cotton, a plug, and ear bud, a wine glass, a pill holder, a stapler, a pair of glasses, an apple, and a pair of scissors.

Live Art Festival 2014

A few photographs of some of the events at this year's Live Art Festival. (Cellphone pictures though, and taken at night ...)
Some performances were provocative, some thought-provoking, some controversial, some beautiful, some powerful, some amazing, some fun, some scary, some plain weird. But there was not a single one I would not have wanted to see.

In the printing studio.

Positioning the inked-up plate on the press. The plate is part of my Marikana series, about the shootings at the Lonmin mine at Marikana on 16 August 2012. Lots of work still to be done on each plate.

Mixed media paintings.

A project I started with ages ago morphed into four mixed media paintings. Actually, two paintings, but each can be turned around to reveal another work at the back. It is part of the series called Matters of the Heart, which includes two etchings and a zine.

Symbols - etchings.

Experimenting with mathematical symbols - and pairing them. Not sure what this will become - an artist's book? It needs words ... needs mulling over somewhat ... we'll see ...

Hmmmmm - can you spot the problem above?
