Two or more

"Two or more" by Pierre Bezuidenhout

Have you noticed how things always tend to work out easier and better when you've got support and more than one person working on a project, plan or even dinner?

My sister, Michelle, and I met Valerie Roscoe this morning at Montebello Art Centre in Claremont. We had a wonderful chat about more sustainable practices in business, art and also ways to be more socially responsible in terms of skills development. Enlightening, inspiring, and it also made me realize how far I still have to journey in my art practise, professional capacity and even as person!

Don't miss this exhibition

Philippe Kayumba


Serge Portrait, 2010
Oil on canvas, 44 x 34cm

"May to September 2009 was a very inspiring period when I started to think a lot about people who have been important to me and influenced me a lot, both as a human being and as a painter.

After this contemplating period, I decided to paint every faces which came back to my mind at this time, faces which are still either inspiring me or haunting me.

This is like a journey back in the years when I was living in RDC (Congo), back into the years when I was a student in Art, back into the years when I decided to become a soldier like other teenagers, or more recent events like when I met my son for the first time.

I decided to paint faces like if I were still a child discovering people and life, paintings with rough lines and bright colors."
The exhibition opens on Monday, 15 February at 18:00, at VANSA's Spin Space, 8 Spin street, Cape Town

See the VANSAwebsite for more information.
I hope I see you there!
