In February 2018 the Harare based Tsoko Gallery in cooperation with the British Embassy in Harare called upon artists to submit works towards an art auction whose proceeds were dedicated to a wildlife initiative.
My submitted work ‘Water-and-Bird Reflection’ has been selected by the jury. It was sold at the auction and found a new home in Victoria Falls.
The ‘Water-and-Bird Reflection’ is an invitation to the onlooker to sit and watch and see and wait and to feel the moment when both – water-and-bird in move – pause for a moment, for a blink of an eye. A moment of silence but actually a very loud moment. The reflection is a window into another world, that goes beyond a simple projection of the ‘real’ world. It puts the scene and this moment in time into a much wider context. i.e. the known / the unknown, the touched and untouched.
