Tessa de Wet - See Them Fly I

ARTIST STATEMENT:  Tessa de Wet

 

One of my fondest childhood memories were watching the boys throw paper aeroplanes in the classroom. Thinking back, it evokes feelings of freedom, laughter and mischief.

The use of wall paper as a background and is a bit of nostalgia and childhood. Simplicity and grandeur.  A bit of home.  Something I wish upon my children and grandchildren – the feeling of innovation, competition and fun – without electronic devices. A sense of being.
