ABOUT THE SHOW

1000PrintsNoFootprints is an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise R1 million before 31 October towards buying a plot of land up the East Coast, in order to manifest the vision of a Reforestation and Creative Retreat, in which we envision ourselves to live more sustainably with the Earth.

In connection with the Reward System of Crowdfunding, I will be hosting an Online and Physical Exhibition of art available as rewards for donations of R1000/$70 towards the campaign. The show will be made primarily of Limited Edition Eco-Friendly Prints of original artworks, paintings and photographs of personal work as well collaborators and friends. If we sell 1000 Prints at R1000 each, we can raise R1 million (R1000 x 1000 Prints = R1 million). Be one of those 1000 contributors towards Erasing our Footprints and driving the Sustainable Living Dream.

Physical Exhibition: 13th-23rd October at the MUTI Gallery. Online Exhibition: Ends 31st of October.
Snapscan / EFT / Cash payments for gallery sales.

The Essence of 1000PrintsnoFootprints is the philosophy of channelling Creativity in a concious way, exchanging art towards a beautiful cause.


ARTIST STATEMENT

Hi, my full name is Christopher Dirk Auret

I am first and foremost, a human being, and then what you could call an artist. I can’t tell you my work is Art. You tell me it is art and it becomes Art. That is your power.

Have a look around. These are things I’ve captured. I may have tried to preach in my first show “You Have My Word”, but I now know we only learn through personal experience. Since then I’ve dug deeper in order to deal with an underlying sense of unease - and this show has been a whirlwind of answers to that something.

I believe in the art of living. I strive for it. It’s only since my journey into being an “artist” began that I have been allowed the time to unpack what it means to me.

I now invite you to delve into what I’m saying. And not saying.
