Opening this Saturday 14th September at The Breytenbach Gallery in Wellington a group exhibition featuring artists who have made works inspired by Afrikaans literature. This is part of the Tuin van Digters festival.
Above are my mantelpiece vases inspired by the poet Jan F.E.Celliers – Here follows the poem:

Dis al – Jan F.E. Celliers


Dis die blond,
dis die blou:
dis die veld,
dis die lug;
en ‘n voël draai bowe in eensame vlug –
dis al

Dis n balling gekom
oor die oseaan,
dis n graf in die gras,
dis n vallende traan –
dis al
