Pieta (A.N.S.)

“The first time I saw duchess satin was in the totally pink interior of Fabric World in Tommy Joubert Plaza 2 in George, it felt like very expensive damp coursing. It is with this sense of confinement that I approach these prints: all images of the late Anna Nicole Smith in wedding dresses. A young Texan dancer (in the tawdry sense) who rose to fame by marrying an octogenarian oil tycoon, her life was punctuated by nuptials. Either expectation of marriage, or being a bride, hemming her in, stopping her having her own desires and direction: like condensation trying to leave a greenhouse. These works consider the sublime disgust of wedding processions: sweat and max factor adorning a bride’s top lip.”  – Fanie Buys, December 2021
