Ku ma oda by Stary Mwaba
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.
