Above is a piece by the South African artist Kendall Geers who came from a working class Afrikaan backround and grew up during apartheid. At fifteen he got involved in the anti - apartied movement. Later he publicily refused to serve in the South AfricanDefence Force which lead to his exile from Africa not returning until the release of Mandela in 1990.

This was probably the first piece in the show that really drew my attention painted in such exactitude but very fresh. I do love a good technical drawing and also the scale is impressive.

It´s not the first time this idea of pouring the pure form of paint into the present has been done but I felt in this case there was a very pure and sculptural element to the work. Reminiscent of seventy home interiors or something.
