17 July 2010 – Ard Matthews


Ard Matthews & Tafadzwa Mukwashi

“Music, the greatest good that mortals know and all of heaven we have hear below. ” – Addison

Just over two weeks later and the third painting of Facing a Century is complete and in the hands of its owner – Just Jinjer’s Ard Matthews. And as predicted, I did like this one madly. Classic grisaille paintings in a paynes grey monochrome are a personal favourite of mine and this was the perfect way for me to reflect the peaceful simplicity and positive emotion behind the man that is Ard Matthews.

From the days of listening to “Like you Madly” and “Sugar Man” on a mixed tape in a bedroom in the middle of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe , reluctantly staring at geography homework and wondering what, if any future lay ahead; to a Cape winter’s evening by the beachfront more than a decade later still wondering what, if any future lies ahead but this time with Ard sitting next to me, one can only have hope and be encouraged that all these little steps that we take add up, every brushstroke adds to a bigger picture.
