The Rabbit Room

Art Studio - viewing by appointment What is The Rabbit Room? The Studio “seed” was planted, by my wonderful friends Louis and Hardy, after attending a week of “Painting with the Irises” at La Creuzette, in France earlier this year.

It then germinated and nurtured into a full grown plan of action at the instigation of my dearest friends Lynn and Andrew. Lynn is the most amazing person one could wish to meet. She herself has already defied all the odds and her spirit is so big, I think it alone is inspirational and it knows no boundaries. Her ability to see the best in everyone and focus on your inner strength is remarkable. S

Portrait Award 2021 - In celebration of it's fifth competition year, we have introduced a second and third monetary prize. We would like to thank The Rupert Art Foundation for backing this initiative and sponsoring these two awards, as well as the first prize.

The Rupert Art Foundation Second Prize Winner Ashley Ogilvy ( @19beta ) initially trained as a graphic designer and worked at several design studios and advertising agencies. Curiosity and a desire to paint and draw was ever present and a move to Cape Town opened the possibility of taking up a fine art education. She honed her drawing skills by making several thousand drawings of the Cape Philharmonic orchestra during weekly rehearsals over several years as well as committing a lifelong practice of figure drawing.

After gaining an art education in SA, Ogilvy later trained and studied in studios and ateliers abroad (including USA, UK, Italy and Morocco). Ashley placed in the Portrait Award Top 40 in previous years due to her technical prowess and intimate painterly style. Her 2021 entry, titled 'Lena Awaits the Day', is a uniquely atmospheric and romanticized rendering of an elderly women, oft forgotten and dismissed by a sometimes unfairly ageist society.

Congratulations Ashley!

How lucky my Cape Town friends are!

Are you ready for some very exciting news?

We are OPENING A SHOP IN CAPE TOWN CBD!! It will open 1 December. But what is even more exciting is that our shop will be located within the new concept shop of Liam tomlin - a world famous chef! You might know his restuarant - The chef's warehouse - he also owns many more restuarants in CT and around the globe.

The shop's name is - THE LOCAL AT HERITAGE - you have guessed it, its within the 300year old building The Heritage square. We will have our own stand alone shop within the shop. It is going to be magnificent. Everything that is beautiful and local will be present in this shop - from fresh produce to more restuarants! I cannot wait!

I have always wanted to sell our flowers directly to the public - and now we can! I will launch a bouquet service online for collection at the shop - it will be the freshest flowers directly from the farm. We are even thinking of season subscriptions where you purchase a subscription and get flowers at a good rate the whole season long! Our florists will also be able to purchase flowers at the shop at a special florist rate - so making this our wholesale shop too.

Not great for game viewing but the sight of fresh green grass shoots sprouting was too good to be true. And my favorite green rock was shimmering! Size: 34 x 30cm. Acrylic on paper.

Wild is Life Trust and ZEN

There is nothing more poignant than witnessing an elephant calf standing by his dead mother, in total despair. To this end, Wild is Life and ZEN and ifaw will go to extraordinary lengths to rescue such a calf and give it a second chance at life.

Meet SAMSON, the newest member of the rescue herd in Panda Masuie. Samson is approx 18/22 months old. His mother had a suspected bullet wound in her leg, which clearly shattered the bone and left her with a major sepsis, unable to walk any distance. She died, leaving little Samson as an orphan.

ZimParks contacted Wild is Life & ZEN, on Saturday afternoon, requesting assistance to rescue and rehabilitate this calf. Jos Danckwerts drove with his team to Hwange National Park and worked with Zimparks well into the night, to sedate and load the calf. It was a dangerous operation, using cell phone torches and a vehicle headlight to dart the calf. Wild elephants and lion could be heard nearby, in the darkness, close to Deteema Dam.

After loading and securing the calf, it was a long stressful journey back to the Panda Masuie boma. ZimParks kindly sent a vehicle to accompany the rescue vehicle all the way back to Panda Masuie. The team arrived home at 1.00am, bone-tired and drained from the emotional and physical stress.

Samson was unloaded and put into a boma, separate from the resident herd. The reason for this was that his introduction to the herd needed to take place in a controlled environment, during daylight.

Two keepers remained with Samson, encouraging him to eat and drink. However, he was extremely stressed and agitated, eventually breaking out of the boma. It was then decided to release the resident herd out of their sleeping quarters to go and help the handlers. They immediately raced down the hill, trumpeting and rumbling, calling for him to come back.

To boot, an enormous herd of buffalo were drinking at the pan, close by. They stampeded and Jos’ team were very worried that Samson would get caught up in the melee. Not least, the keepers’ safety was of paramount concern.

True to form, our elephants did their job! They located Samson within minutes and coaxed him back inside the fence, where they spent the night getting to know each other! It was now 3.00am! They were all left outside of their sleeping quarters to roam freely within the quarantine fence.

At first light, Jos and the keepers found young Samson in thick of the herd, surrounded by all the elephants, still touching and reassuring him. He was not in the least bit agitated and had settled down considerably.

Annabelle, appears to have taken charge of this little calf. Nkanyezi and Nora are also vying for the privilege of his care, but Madam Annabelle, our warrior female, is having none of it!

Samson is now swimming and mud bathing, eating browse, walking easily into the sleeping quarters and fully engaged with the other elephants. He now has a second chance at a wild life, within a family who will nurture and care for him, for as long as he needs.

Thanks to Jos Danckwerts, Conservation Director Wild is Life & ZEN, for his tremendous courage and resilience in getting this rescue done, under extremely difficult conditions. His Team are to be highly commended for their commitment to ensuring the best care for this calf.

Thanks to ZimParks for caring about the welfare of this calf and for instituting the rescue procedures, as well as providing their veterinarian, Dr Kudzai Mupondi, to dart and accompany the calf to safety. They did a stirling job! @Sam Chibaya

Thanks to IFAW for their support of this project and for believing in the rescue of these orphans.🐘🥰🙏 #WildisLife_ZEN #rescue #rehabilitation #rewilding

Sculpture on the cliffs

Gavin Younge is synonymous with Hermanus Fynarts. Gavin was one of the first artists to to take part in the #SculptureoftheCliffs exhibition as well as exhibited in the first FynArts Gallery exhibition. Gavin is the curator of the 2020 Sculpture on the Cliffs.

You can also join Gavin Younge for a walk-about of his 'Daimyo Procession' and 'Men of the Number' collections on Friday 14th August between 12.00 - 14.00 at Everard Read Cape Town

"This series of scarab beetles is inspired by 'a fantasy scene of insects, lizards, and frogs in the guise of a daimyo procession' on one of [Japanese artist] Yabu Meizan’s earthenware vases.

The tradition of caricaturing human activities by substituting insects has a very long history in Japan, the most famous example being the Choju giga (humorous pictures of birds and beasts), a set of 13th-century picture scrolls.

A ‘daimyo procession’ is thus a set of ancient warriors serving an absent royalty."

Really nice work and beautiful interiors

Welcome to Justin's online exhibition. Grab yourself a cuppa and scroll through what he's been up to over the last several months. Lockdown has afforded Justin a lot more time at his easel - where else would you get to paint solidly for three months? Inspiration came from many places, walks in the greenbelt, driving along the R62, Eastern Cape holidays and more. I’ve amended the post to include prices as quite a few of you have asked.Please note that not all of these paintings are framed. 09/07/2020

I love this Lisl

I thought I would share some of my pieces currently on the KKNK visual arts virtual exhibition over the next couple of days.

Do go and have a look at the festival exhibition. 2020's theme is 'Down to Earth' and touches on Man's relationship with the environment/nature. Some absolutely amazing and thought provoking work to be seen and experience.

This piece from my exhibition 'Birds of a Feather', is called 'More or Less'.

The title followed my trippy thought process on the name of these vibrant water birds: lesser flamingos.

More plastic waste = more feeding and breeding habitat degraded = less (fewer) birds.

More mindful human action = less (no) plastic waste = more birds = more lesser flamingos.

More or less.
