As a commercial artist, I really try and paint something personal - either something about myself or something that I feel strongly about - and my artwork is never for sale... In this one instance, the work is a part of me.
So this year my entry to the Members Exhibition is a selfie. A rather revealing selfie - which lends itself to the exhibition I did last year in Hermanus whereby I say:
"I will tell you anything.
I’m an open book.
You can have the facts but don’t ask how I feel"...
My message for this entry is:
"Being naked is easy, revealing my emotions is downright daunting"...
