I snapped these last week at Whatiftheworld at the opening of Athi’s new solo show. This one was a bit of a family affair so I’m not gonna go on and on about how mind-blowingly amazing it is to behold because some of y’all skeptic skatties are gonna assume I’m biased anyway. Thankfully the show does not at all need my help; it’s pretty fucking awesome. The pieces will be up until the 8th of Feb, so if you haven’t seen it yet I recommend you pay the gallery a visit. For those who might not be familiar with Athi’s technique; those are hand embroidered tapestries (obvs except the photos, stained glass piece and installation), and you need to do yourself a favour and stand in front of one to fully appreciate their awesomeness. For now though, enjoy the images.
AND LATER FOR AN INTIMATE CELEBRATORY DINNER AT 'THE DINING ROOM', WHICH BY THE WAY IS AN AWESOME LITTLE VENUE OPENING UP THIS DECEMBER.

Last night I went to Michaelis Galleries at Hiddingh campus to check out my friend Jody Paulsen's body of work for his Fine Art Master's. I actually had decided that I wasn't going to take my camera because I was a bit tired and I felt like just enjoying a night out and enjoying my friend's work without feeling like I was on the lookout for stuff to snap. Big fucking mistake! Within a couple of minutes after I stepped into the gallery I stepped back out into my car and went straight home to fetch my camera, this shit was just too yummy and I had to record and share. All this work by the way is done in felt, little pieces of felt cut and perfectly placed. My camera skills really don't do it justice, as a bit of texture gets lost in the pics. Unfortunately this exhibition was a one night only event so i can't even send you back to have a look. Soz. By the way, a couple of months ago Jody also collaborated on a range of prints with Keith Henning for his label Adriaan Kuiters, I paid them a studio visit when they were preparing for the show, which you can read about here. Enjoy. and motherfucking well done Jody.
