I take the South African landscape as my departure point to delve into the history of our land and those who work it. In the series “After Pierneef”, I lay down individual shreds of decommissioned South African bank notes – tapestry-like – in order to present my contemporaneous take on Pierneef’s historic and iconic landscapes. I was able to access and use these shredded banknotes following extensive consultation with the SA Reserve Bank, specifically on the grounds that the metaphor behind the works is the “recycling of value”. This makes the unique materiality of the artworks central to their meaning.
