When i thought of the messages I intended to highlight for this exhibition I noticed how the ironic “spotlight” has been placed on South Africa with all that is going on politically.
I Found us as a nation to be In a very dark place not only literally with our current energy crisis but with the regard that most people hold our current situation.
With this in mind the inspiration I wish to translate is to bring as much ‘love & light’ through my work as possible hence my main sculpture ‘light-shedding’ and the overall tone that echoes through the rest of the work on exhibit.
Every single piece of steel you see here has undergone immense transformation to become and hold the energy it does made possible only by the most intense light we know….. fire!
I hope my message of ‘love & light’ shines through for you in my work and that you receive as much enjoyment from it as I have had creating it…..
