About "Air Spirit"
Sculpture commission requests available on request.
A series of visual sculptural renditions of the characters in a book (“Spirit of Being”) written by the artist.
The book is a depiction of how, when world as we know it, ends. The survivors of this catastrophe gather in small groups in isolated pockets around the globe. The sculptures are the ‘knowing’ characters who end up being persecuted for their memories and learning’s.
The story shows how, history as we know it and have read of, repeats itself through new generations of children who have no heritage or knowledge of the past. The story shows how people with knowledge of the past, are viewed as witches and mystics with strange powers … these powers are soon seen as demon possession or worse and the so called shaman or medicine man is then persecuted out of fear and misunderstanding.
Thus the passing of technology into the mists of time being labled as magic and mystery and with it the mystics and shamans, is but a repeating history lesson, time and time again depicting the rise and fall of civilisation as we know it.

My Life and the living of it ... this is all the Inspiration I need to Visually Express all that my Eyes have Perceived and Heart Felt ... to physically Create all the Spirit I have been Moved by, for others to bear Witness to!
I have a knack to experiment in all media and medium, new ideas are exciting not daunting. I like to work to a patron's request, as special effects are challenging and rewarding.
Creating a persons concept into a recognizable visual is reward unto itself.
The more I am challenged to be creative, the more depth I find to draw upon. This becomes a path to follow, teach and learn from.
Passing talent and techniques onto the young and aspiring is one of the very rewarding aspects of my chosen walk, my own children are inspiration as well guides in my life.
All Pictures are collectables and are sold with a trackable certificate. This will enable the new owner to track any new offers made on the item and thus the increase in worth will always be validated. This allows even an unseasoned art collector to realize the value of their collection.
Being proudly South African, I love to depict the African wildlife, i.e. The Big 5, as sensationally as one can in any chosen medium.
Experimenting in ways of new visually pleasing formats and tactilely leading one's fingers to touch the animals (which are actually in relief to the dusty sunset backgrounds) lends an added sense experience to the witness.
I put a lot of feelings and attachment to the subject matter of my paintings, they are each unique and individual in the time frame they were made in as well as the circumstances I found myself in at the time ... There is therefore a mixed sense of joy and loss when a special work leaves my personal Gallery and begins its journey around the world.
To this end I designed the trackable certificate so that the owners as well as myself, would be able to follow the interesting route the piece embarks upon, which may have started with a whimsical thought and paintbrush, but is much akin to the bated breath and first step of any adventure.
The artist will consider all commissions on request, agreed upon price and timeframe.
