Powerful, large-scale piece of art - coming straight from my South African studio.
What moves me? I am a seeker of objects, a collector, a player. Unfortunately messy, always searching, always
in the midst of it - always where it’s at. Curious, sometimes brave, mostly careful and always
willing to look beneath the surface. I was washed up into the middle of Johannesburg, into the
epicentre of South African daily madness, still surprised but deeply thankful for what I can see,
smell, read, soak up every day. I am interested in people: mama holding her kid’s hand,;these
loud groups of seemingly overenthusiastic youths; the tiny, sad looking girl by the side of the
road. The security guard, the fruit seller, the photographer I met recently. The old neighbour
who now lives in an old people’s home. I collect their stories. The newspaper seller at the
junction, I talk with him every day. What is it that moves you? What makes you happy? What is
home for you, for me - so far on the other side of the world. Is there such a thing as one, true
happiness? What does loss mean, and - so close to life - what if death suddenly becomes
I collect. Every day I collect stories, memories, I collect images - in my head, with my camera.
In many boxes, with many seemingly chaotic piles I sort, connect, join new stories, faces with
the impressions life has so far gifted me. I walk through this, my, life with open eyes - knowing
that no-one else could see it like this, love it like this, experience it like I do.
