crocodile tears - brett murray (part 1)

Brett Murray is currently exhibiting (April 10 - May 3) at the Goodman Gallery Cape. They are located on the 3rd Floor, Fairweather House, 176 Sir Lowry Road, Woodstock, Cape Town. Phone no 021- 462 - 7573 / 4, Fax 021- 462 - 7579.Yesterday I attended a walkabout arranged by Friends of the National Gallery. I found the exhibition very tongue in cheek, and with Brett's comments on his own work - very interesting and comforting for me - as fellow visual person. He is definately not afraid to invoke feelings in people! = )

This stunning shoe was installed in the bathroom, and a clue to the exhibition's contents.

These cut-outs are just amazing! The craftmanship is brilliant. And for Brett good craftmanship is very important - and I agree!



More to follow shortly - too many for one post - and the stuff is just awesome - but as he says - no need to say too much - the viewer will interperate what they need to...
