Maria Magdalena van Wyk – The Wander Collection

December 2, 2014

Maria-Magdalena-van-Wyk-23

The other day a lovely young lass by the name of Maria Magdalena sent myself and NJ a little parcel in the mail. Inside it was a beautiful limited edition print called ‘Alice’ from her Wander Collection. She drew it to represent the unconditional and overwhelmingly instant love that she felt for her baby niece that was born on 14 September 2014 – I think I can relate to that feeling.

Nina has a whole bunny collection going in her room, so this print fits right in perfectly and I couldn’t be more pleased with it, it’s whimsical and detailed and so pretty and it makes for such a nice piece in her room.

Emily Jane Long10

2 days ago I posted about a piece of art that I had commissioned for Shane for our 6th wedding anniversary. What I didn’t know was that Shane had also secretly commissioned another brilliant local South African artist, Emily Jane Long to create a piece of art for me as a gift. It was so awesome when we both pulled out these 2 flat wrapped gifts and almost immediately we both realised what they were.

On Friday a parcel arrived for me from the lovely ladies at Zana. If you haven’t heard of this company yet, then you’re just about to get super excited because they make the prettiest, raddest, awesomest things and they are all handmade, designed and created by this local Capetonian team. I absolutely love their stuff because it makes me so super happy. I bought one of their YAY banners for Nina James’ room and now I have a bunch of new things to swoon over.

Driehoek – Surfaces Exhibition

October 21, 2014

driehoek

The lovely girls from Driehoek are putting on a solo exhibition again at Wolves. The last time they did that it was a sold out show because their stuff was damn nice and fun. I really can’t wait for this one either. It starts this Friday at Wolves at 6pm. See you there…

- In this exhibition, we explore the Eureka movement. Focusing on the scientific and in this particular case, the squishy bits.  The Eureka movement is a movement of discovery and intellectual enrichment, making information accessible and understandable to the people. We are students of the eureka movement but of course we don’t take it to seriously. From dissecting a Ninja turtles hand to our interpretation of the human nerves system, to imagined geological studies and science puns. We discover the many imagined, colourful, quirky and humours surfaces of the scientific. We are so exited to launch our latest exhibition: Surfaces, in Johannesburg and for the first time ever in Cape Town! Come and join us for a glass of wine.
