landscape with houses

if you were ever near an art school in your youth or more likely as part of your tertiary education, you probably had to do light & colour exercises – where the different combinations of hues & shades would influence the object and how it looked in its surroundings. so i really smiled when i saw these house & landscape studies by maria zaikana – read more about the project here

Vincent Fournier‘s Space Project is just too beautiful (as you can see, i had a difficult time picking ones i liked… i may as well just have posted all the photographs).

In Daniel Naudé’s first solo show, he presents a world that appears to be a fairy tale, or a fictional place: We see a donkey with the grace of a race horse. Next to an impossibly beautiful rainbow, a white mule almost turns into a unicorn. The hills and veld that Naudé invites us to traverse are filled with wonderful creatures, each more proud, perfect, and present than the next.

karoo

the dudes in my family went on a big bad bike trip this past weekend.  they had several burst tyres when going through the tankwa karoo. so if you ever decide to do that… take lots of spares. i wish you could take a train right through the karoo – i would LOVE that! and i don’t mean the typical blue train route… more off the beaten track. kind of impossible to take a train to Die Hel though.
