About "Athol Fugard"
Athol Fugard is a renowned playwright who was called "The greatest living playwright of our time" by Time Magazine and the artist was very honoured when Fugard agreed to sit for a sculpture. Boekkooi lives and works in Nieu Bethesda, where Fugard retires to write from time to time. Edition of 7 - 6 remaining.
"My sculptures feed off the nostalgia of innocent times, lost in thought or activity. Sometimes they even embody the thoughts or pictures born in a moment [0x1] but every piece has meaning. To me, at least, they speak.[0x1]
Frans Boekkooi was introduced to sculpture at the age of fourteen and won his first major sculpture award (ATKV) at sixteen. He received the ‘Best on Show’ Award at the 2000 EPSAC Annual Exhibition.
