Soul so beautiful
Oh soul, so light, so beautiful
This world is just too much for you
Your feet are treading softly
On broken glass
The pain seeps from your skin
Your eyes flicker of the sadness within
As you clamber to hold
on to the day
The mind is a wild garden
over grown, lost, forgotten
bird songs echo of
the silent tears you weep
‘Long Face’, Sam Shendi at Graham’s Gallery Johannesburg
After several years of carving, crafting, working and whipping up huge sculptural stories, tonight in Johannesburg the opening of my husband solo show will showcase all that work in one space at Graham’s Fine Art Gallery (photos from the gallery)
The sculptor was amazed to see himself larger than life. ( I see this everyday!) but literally plastered all over the building.
A month at sea, a stay in the port and then the drive from Durban to Johannesburg to the gallery, the sculptures arrived not quite without hiccup.
A few damaged and the repair kit missing added to the drama. However, hoping today that has all been fixed. I haven’t heard any updates so praying that everything is going well.
So he spent an intense day unloading and setting up.
Yesterday, he had interviews.
Tonight the show will open. I am so excited all the way back home here in North Yorkshire and anticipating hearing all about it….find out more tomorrow.
Here is a sneak preview :
