Jonkershoek Valley, Stellenbosch

The plan was for a work with yellow autumn leaves onto a tree, but all the fallen yellow leaves that had been on the forest floor before had turned black completely, and the trees had not yet shed any more. Strijdom found these green leaves to work with instead – which felt appropriate on such a warm Sunday afternoon in May with still an air of summer to it, but with the forest in the background visibly bare already. The act of fixing the green leaves onto the tree seemed a last look back at summer.
