Artist Description

It is midday and the summer sun beats down at 38 degrees. A choir of cicadas perform the music of the ancient Karoo landscape. Your hair is still wet on your back from swimming in the cool water of Dapperfontein’s dam. You realize that this is all you need at that moment. For a single perfect moment you are one with nature the way it was in paradise after creation.
You are convinced that you could leave the “other world” behind. A world where other realities dictate to you. The world of cell phones, social media, rushing off to work, the relentless routine and the merciless pace of everyday life. So you rest a little longer in the shade of the blue gum tree and bask a little more in the hot sun. Then the flying carpet lands and you know you have to return to that “other world”. Still, in your mind you can always revisit this sacred temple of tranquility, your holy ground in the heart of the Karoo.
