Acknowledgements and thanks
I am grateful to Mimi van der Merwe specifically
for continued support, advice and ongoing guidance; as well
as to Andre Naude, who also acted as mentor – while Pieter
van Heerden, Curator of the Association of Arts, Pretoria gave
invaluable help with the final selection of works and framing.
Andries Oliphant kindly agreed to open the exhibition;
I know I can count on his sharp visual intellect and intuition
to lead people into this selection of new works.
Thanks also to Henning, Thys, friends and colleagues
for their patience and support during this time!

Hirst paper. Chine collé elements are made of
either hand-coloured rice paper, or tissue papers.
