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!
