Association of Arts, Pretoria – Members Exhibition
For the annual members exhibition I made a special work titled Skull – Dog/Shark.
The concept for my current series of abstracted skulls is based on recognising the familiar – teeth, eye sockets, shape and size.
Each Skull is unique. Carving the glass/optical crystal with a diamond saw, silicon carbide wheel or profiled stone I shape each shard into a character. It’s only in the end, when the eyes are polished and teeth gleam that the spirit within reveals itself. That’s the moment when I recognise that beast…
…and hence the title Skull – Dog/Shark.
Can you see it?
The exhibition at the Association of Arts is on till 9 February 2019.
