Crossing the bridge from the ‘conscious’ and the ‘unconscious’
My Art practice is where I try to make sense off the human condition, where I reflect and engage with philosophical suggestions, dialogues and narratives around questions off, ‘consciousness’ ‘being’ ‘identity’ ‘humanity’ ‘belonging’ ‘life & death’, responding to current local and global;Climate, Socio-Economic-Political, perspectives and challenges.

The work exhibited at The Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre, which opened on Earth day, the 22 April 2018, ‘Nothing stands still’ moves my practice towards collective consciousness ‘belonging‘, ‘migration‘,’conflict‘, aligned to the theme of water, as the underlying conceptual metaphor for this reflection, ‘Fresh water’ as a limited natural resource.

Earth Day 2018 focused on the rising plastic crisis that is landing in our oceans and that never breaks down. The installation ‘ Hanging in the balance 1 ‘ responds to the growing activism around this global issue.
