I know after a long silence i always come back with the same sad, soppy story about how sorry I am for the neglect and the silence and that this time round i'ma make a difference and try and post something atleast once a week....yup its that time again! But the difference this time is I mean it, I actually mean it. I am going to make a concious decision and put something up atleast once a week.

My posts have taken a major tangent turn from what they were initially. Now its not just about art and what i do, but rather im going to focus on the things i love doing, things i'm passionate about whether people are interested in them or not because in the end this is for me right, first and foremost it is about me isnt it. lol i sound super selfish ryt thurr its allowed dou ryt, once in a while...

So i've taken a stance, this blog is free for all! Whatever i feel like writing at that particular time i'ma write; whether it makes sense or not, im just going to write. Exercise my authority over words and how their put together in ma mind. All those little scribbles coming together floating in my mind to ultimately form something of substance...I've been birthed again into the world of writing, after reading a couple of pieces - ma mind has been challenged.....Im ready to take the challenge up...

Lets do dis'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Diary Afrika

Currently showing at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe in Mutare, from the 27 July to 7 September, are some of Clive Mukucha's paintings and sculptures. Through a vast range of color and creativity Mukucha has managed to portray some of the common scenes depicted in various African cultures.

(From Left to Right) Chief's Wife, Chief's Son & Chief


The work in this exhibition looks at traditions and beliefs of our varying cultures; showing images of stories and everyday life happenings. His sculptures are a combination of used material, empty plastic bottles and bobs, keys, typewriter keys and wiring all put together to create a tangible, aesthetic object. His work is a combination of paintings as well as mixed media paintings with objects placed on top.

"THE AESTHETICS THAT ARE BORN OUT OF MY WORK ARE PLURAL, BUT BASED ON CERTAIN PREMISES, BEING BLACK, ACCORDING TO THE ORETICIANS OF NEGRITUDE, IS FOREMOST A WAY EXISTING IN THE WORLD, COMPROMISED OF EMOTION, PARTICIPATION AND GATHERING OF FORCES.THE WORKS I PRESENT ARE A REAFFIRMATION OF A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MAN AND NATURE THAT IS NOT A RELATIONSHIP OF DOMINATION , BUT RATHER BASED ON COMMUNICATION AND THE EXPRESION OF AN EMPHATIC RELATIONSHIP IN THE WORLD ."

Studio

I am in the process of converting a wooden storeroom into a studio. But my problem is if it rains i'm worried the water will seep through the panels and underneath. What sort of boards or paneling could i use for the walls and the flooring so i becomes water proof? Anyone with suggestions?

Recently I have been fascinated with the play of light on objects, buildings...anything. From the skyline to skyscrapers; the play of the sun between trees or clouds. I love the way light can manipulate something and make it look completely different from what it started off as.

I thought I might tease you with a couple of pictures I took that I thought were absolutely amazing...
