Roy Gibbs - "Klipspringer"
W: 300mm x H: 300mm x D: 18mm
Approx. Weight: 320kg
This work is unframed
Few animals are so well adapted to their environment than a klipspringer and its ability to run safely and quickly over rocky terrain gives it confidence. So, they often take up this pose when approached, looking over its shoulder but ready to flee knowing that it can easily avoid that stupid 4x4 crawling up the track.
Originally from Ipswich in the UK, I emigrated in 1979, working for a British company, and remained here in this beautiful, exciting country ever since. I live on the edge of the Moot valley with a vista of the Magaliesberg mountains and a garden full of birds. Karee, Hookthorn and Pink Ivory trees grow around the house, Stamvrug and Milkwood on the hillslopes behind us.
I participated at 'Botanical' an exhibition held at Kim Sacks Gallery, Rosebank, Johannesburg, December / January 2021 and at the 2019 symposium of the Association of South African Woodturners my work was placed in both decorative and woodturning categories.
I am a metallurgist and self taught artist
