arty saturday

Ku ma oda by Stary Mwaba

Karin Preller

Braam Kruger

Went to three art exhibitions today. The first was karin preller at artscape gallery along the strip in Rosebank/Parkwood where I eyed this painting of a suburban house which reminded me of Bellville where I grew up and wouldn't have minded buying but it cost R7400 and could not afford it.
Then popped into gallery momo to see stary mwaba's exhibition which I heard was brilliant, the best in Joburg at the moment, but it didn't move me. And the work is expensive - some R65 000 and so on, but many were sold. Owner Monna Mokwena clearly knows the right people, has the right clientele.
Then popped in, a little later, to see braam kruger's exhibition at the pink church in Melville. Think I liked the buiding even more than the art although seeing the car with the "hedonist" numberplate on his colourful van - on the side, nogal - parked outside the church, made me feel pretty sad. Used to see him around often.

  1. liked some of the sketches that braam did, but really felt like those were works that he would not have sold
