Ultra Modern Art – In The Presence of Love
This ultra-modern art piece was inspired by Franz Kline’s abstract expressionist style as well as Rorschach’s inkblots.
During another load shedding outage in Cape Town, and with nothing else to do but sit in the dark on a Thursday night, I decided to go to the beach, camera in hand, to watch the Poi fire dancers Paint with fire. The electricity finally back on again, I headed home. I knew that what I had captured that night on the beach would form part of my Inkblot Series.
I named this large-scale print ‘In the Presence of Love’ because, like a voyeur, I observed a couple in the poi dancers group from behind my camera lens, recollecting my past romantic relationships.
No one can escape the pangs of a broken heart. Instead, we construct a memorial to mark the loss. However, if we remain in love in our thoughts, hearts, and actions, despite the pain, all the abandoned parts of ourselves will come together.
