'We belong' by Santie Cronje,
AP 1/1 Framed - one-off photographic artwork.
'We belong' is a photographic overlay with the Huia feathers symbolising our place in the world, community and ancestry. 'Belonging is so much more than having a place to call home, community or a feeling of being settled. As an immigrant I have longed for a place to belong to, until I realised that belonging was acceptance rather than a search'. Santie
The Artist Proof is framed in an elegant white, angular frame with a wide mountboard to give the image ample breathing space.

'Art and creativity has been around me for as long as I can remember. From the paintings in my parents house, to my early years of making art at school. My interest in art has guided me on an interesting creative journey, from the first drawings I was proud of in Biology, to fulfilling a dream of becoming a full time artist and eventually the owner of a beautiful Concept Gallery'
