The thread that runs through this exhibition are dogs. It is a tongue in cheek depiction of artists and their dogs that never featured in their works. The dogs are playfully restored in reworked artworks of original work.

It is probably more about special things in life that are never recorded or shared and forgotten. This is a way to remind us about those moments and what better metaphor than humankind’s best friend to remind us

The theme originated from two works that I did for an exhibition at Astrid’s gallery. The theme then was to create a new artwork by using old works of well-known masters. In our discussion relating to these works both Hennie and I saw the potential of developing it into an exhibition.
