RHYTHMS Regi Bardavid Solo Exhibition
24 Aug – 20 Sept.
The Melrose Gallery JHB
Learning to live with myself. No outside
I become one with my surroundings and the
sounds of silence. Time is mine.
More in tune with myself.
Bubbles of insight emerge from my being.
A profound unconscious sense of self and
calm. Frees my hands and mind.
Charcoal and pencils.
Paint and colours applied without constraints.
The music has started.
The dance followed.
