A few words about the body of works this example comes from:
“Reality is always shifting and, as an attempt to make sense of it, so am I.”
– Liza Grobler
a rainbow in my pocket is a series of paintings that recounts ‘scapes’ from the past twelve months of Cape Town artist Liza Grobler’s life, captured in mixed media on canvas. The individual pieces become building blocks for a larger narrative, where the physical movement through space (be it landscape, cityscape or dreamscape) is evoked as an emotive response to place.
In this ongoing process, imagined landscapes are challenged by physical encounters, and prior interactions are shaped by new explorations. These scapes become windows onto an inner world that is always under construction and constantly in flux.
- Stellenbosch writer Tom Dreyer composed a series of poems in response to these works.
- Tom Dreyer is a South-African novelist and poet writing in both English and Afrikaans.
