Evoking Art Experience @ Ingrid Nuss fine art gallery, Timberlake Organic Village, between Wilderness & Sedgefield, Garden Route, Western Cape, South Africa
Exhibitions, collections, series and projects are some of the ways to categorise my very varied amount of work. My art is very often intuitive, site-specific and/or experimental but created as part of a series, such as Beach Meditations and Nuances, or part of a thematic body of work (mostly presented as an exhibition):

Projects / Curated exhibitions
In collaboration with amazing fellow artists, I’ve coordinated two environment-focused exhibitions, of which the most recent also included workshops and talks for the public by leading ecologists from the area.
During residencies I often also create a substantial amount of work, as can be seen for these residencies and projects:
- Tankwa Artscape, South Africa (May/June 2019).
- OPENLab2016, as part of the Programme for Innovation in Artform Development (PIAD), an initiative of the Vrystaat Arts Festival and University of the Free State. This included a week-long residency at MAP (Modern Art Projects) in Richmond. (July 2016): view the photos of my performance art piece.
- Stories of Rain (GNAP South Africa).
- Global Nomadic Art Project Korea II. Presented by Yatoo-i, South Korea. (August 2015).
- Thupelo workshop 2015: land art / photo project.
- Site_Specific International Land Art Biennale, Plettenberg Bay.
