Rorke, McCrickard & Sanders
David Krut Projects presents a selection of new work by renewed interactions with established artists and makers. This includes work made with first-time collaborator Patrick Rorke, and renewed interactions with long-standing collaborators Kate McCrickard and Master Printmaker Phil Sanders.
Patrick Rorke is an artist and painter based in Morija, Lesotho. He has been active as an artist for over forty years and is considered a master of contemporary art in Lesotho. In Morija he runs a contemporary art gallery and frequently organises exhibitions, events and festivals. His work is about his surroundings and the compelling but fragile existence of the people within this landscape.
This October (2020), Patrick was in residency at the David Krut Workshop at Arts on Main, Maboneng, where he explored the technique of painterly prints in the form of watercolour monotypes with our team of printers. Please visit the David Krut Workshop blog, to read about his stay with us.
Visit Patrick’s website to view more of his works and read about his story of being involved with the Constitutional Court, for which he made the sunscreens on the windows along one side of the building.
