Photo Update from my residency in Johannesburg...

This is a photo update of my work/ project so far at the bag factory residency.
It's been a great experience experimenting with new materials in this case wire wool and getting myself to draw again.

This must have been from my first few weeks here

This is actually just about 2 weeks ago after several experiments with wire wool as you can see on the table

Creating the structure for the main sculpture from pipes and Styrofoam 

Attaching the wire wool

 So far so good...

Now that isn't the final work, I'll be showing that once the show opens but before then I'll share some more work in progress photos.

The final show opens next week Wednesday, more details in next post!
Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Any reason for covering up the base materials? I think letting some of the styrofoam and pipes show through would make the work more interesting. Look forward to seeing the final images.

    1. Thanks Karo. But if I had the option not to use the pipes and Styrofoam I wouldn't. The main materials for me was the steelwool but I needed a support structure inside. But thank you very much for your observation and comment. Sorry for the late reply. I didn't see them I think or I forgot.

  2. I love this really looks like a tree trunk, you are doing real good girl. Would love to see more.
