Ferdie die verkleursmannetjie – 2023

Oil on Canvas.  H69 x W93.5cm

Ferdie was my pet chameleon when I was an undergraduate student in Johannesburg. Verkleursmannetjie is Afrikaans for a chameleon.

I have adopted the chameleon as my aspirational alter ego and metaphoric role model. Chameleons  camouflage themselves by changing their skin colour to adapt to any given environment. Additionally they have one hundred and eighty degree vision with their two protruding eyes operating independently.
