Jacob van Schalkwyk’s Art with Poetry

Tomorrow, Saturday 17 September at 11am, is the opening of Sunsets – Jacob van Schalkwyk’s solo exhibition at David Krut Projects Cape Town.
He will have a WALKABOUT on Saturday 1 October, at 11am where it will be my privilege to read certain poems that the art works (lithographic ink on paper) cause me to reflect upon. To tantalise you, I mention Jacob’s work titled Regrowth, and the poem, Silvermine April 2005, by Margaret Clough. Both the artist and the poet were inspired by the resurrection of fire lilies after the devastating SIlvermine fires which rendered the landscape black and from which blossomed magnificent reds to remind us of the miracle of life.
