About "Blue Sky Mine"

The portrait is of a "Riel" dancer in the Northern Cape. The Riel is danced around the campfire after hunting expeditions, good harvests or during a celebration. In Nama culture the dance is known as Ikhapara which is derived from the word "khapas" which means "hat". The hat of the man is a useful article to win a lady's hand in marriage. With the environmental problems we are experiencing here in Cape Town with regards to water scarcity and the fracking in the Karoo I am alluding to the need to connect with the land and the environment and return to a symbiotic relationship in this work.

About Gary

Gary Frier

"I believe that making art is a compulsive act of self expression that can only be realized through the collaborative act of creating and experiencing. Creating art for me is about constantly reflecting on my place in the reality. Using art to express a emotional and intellectual and tactile value, discovering how to distill and interpret my interaction with what surrounds me and documenting that personal relationship.
