“Be still 1” captures a little girl with an umbrella as an antidote to the depressive news of the day and makes a comment about how we can all access joy to overcome our fears. Andrew says, “Recently I have started to look on the brighter side of life. There is a good and joyous side to Johannesburg depicted by the friendly and sometimes comical ways street vendors go about selling their goods. I notice and internalize humorous interactions people have with each other in taxi ranks and on the streets, and how children play on the streets and the high-rise flats they call home. I balance my work with a positive outlook and the realities faced through this period of the pandemic. This newfound balance has produced increased passion and love for my work.”
