“Making art for me is sort of like breathing, I don’t know how not to or even what to say about it, it is my way of talking. Collaborating with Jeff is fun and very enlightening, I learn more than I did before I started the project and usually it leads to something else even more intriguing. I am interested in how we think and live, most of my work spins off that.” Cecelia Chapman

Club Limpopo by Cecelia Champman

May 1st, the last rhino in Mozambique was poached. Cecelia found this out when she googled rhinoceros as Jeff Crouch suggested.

Tragically, people have been buying rhinoceros horn for hundreds of years from the Limpopo and Mozambique area. Recently conservation rangers, local farmers, terrorists, heavily armed roving bandits and revolutionary groups have been poaching for the horn worth more than gold and platinum. With vigilantes and Kenyan locals arming themselves to protect the beast. Rhino horn demand grows with Asian economies and Western countries bear the bulk of the actual trade…

Bricolage by Cecelia Chapman

Reasons and ?:

1. You can cultivate a crash (a rhino herd) for their horns as they grow back.

2. Mozambique is one of the world’s poorest countries.

3. Rhino parties.

4. Actually that last rhino wandered over into Mozambique from someplace else because the last rhino was killed a long time ago…

5. The print Bricolage came about as Cecelia wanted to assemble these prints quickly from internet images and Jeff said, yep, bricolage. When she found her first image of Mozambique, brick makers being directed by a guy in a very white shirt, she knew she had her answer to half the question why? Once again she will say Mozambique is one of the world’s poorest countries.
