Dementia – Oil on Canvas by Arno Carstens
An attempt at the Russian doll effect – creating a surrealistic space within the artist or spectator and from there the inner mind. Blank to an open canvas displayed as a cosmic void from where the question of discovery of an eventful or uneventful history takes you back to the moment of conceptualizing.

“I think Francois, me and the guys are equally ecstatic about taking our show on the road again after last year’s success, but this time we’re adding something special and paying our respects to some of the best songs written over the last 20 years by South African rock artists, and that is an added joy. We had a meeting and discussed our wish lists, made up of sentimental personal favourites. Songs that should never be forgotten. I don’t see this as a celebration of the past but rather an affirmation of timeless SA Rock classics.”says Arno.
