Thursday 27th July: Lakwena's "The Future's Gold" at KKOutlet, Part 2

I missed the private view for Lakwena's show but have now visited and its truly AMAZING.  She has painted every piece of wall on the premises and covered the floor in gold to match the foil in the prints.  You can take a piece of the exhibition home with you in the form of patches and pins with the same messages and anecdotes as the canvases.  I couldn't resist a rainbow one for my coat of many colourful patches which bares the irresistable sentiment "The Best Is Yet To Come"!  Indeed it is, Lakwena just gets better and better............ I can't wait to see what she has lined up next!
