Drawing and photography are central to my practice. Both make pressing - if sometimes fictitious - claims to the capture of lost moments.


African Christmas

The light is so fierce, the sun so strong, that I really don't know how to take photographs here - the contrast is excessively sharp, so either they come out blanched, or with the shadows sooting out too much. This Father Christmas waiting at the chimney for his reindeer to collect and take him to cooler climes, on the road from Kommetjie to Fish Hoek.
