Skotnes


The Skotnes artwork I decided to work with for the Artspace exhibition 'Inspirations'. It was not the work I chose, rather the artist. Cecil Skotnes's son, John, is a good frien of mine. Every year when I visit John, during my gemmology workshop at CPUT, I see all the Skotnesses in his flat and am very taken by them... hence the desire to work with Skotnes. I see so much in his images... he had the abiltiy to reduce human features to motifs/signs/symbbols that were easily 'digested'... at least by me...
