Reevea Steenkamp died 14 February 2013
Annie Dewani died on 13 November 2010

Both were young. Both were beautiful. Both had vivid lives ahead of them. Reeva could have become a judge in the High Court. Annie's life was open before her, full of hope.

Both died because they became involved with rich guys with mental health problems. Both guys were well off and well respected. Both were ruined by their competitive, power obsessed, gun happy, money worshiping culture. Both men ended up pawns of their way of life. Neither behaved as a completely free man and both tried to do what their cultures demanded of them.

What they did not realise was that their women - Annie and Reeva - would be the ones to pay. In Homer's day the Greek people would have said something like, "Humans, beware the implacable goddesses protecting women. Beware their wiles which will draw you into sexual traps that will spring tight the moment you step into them. They will mince you without your even knowing what is happening." In our day we know that today's much vaunted culture is unnatural and dangerous. People who think money is everything and guns will protect them become so messed up that terrible things can happen to them.

Meanwhile Anni and Reeva, the bright, shining, smiling young women have just stepped into the wider universe, shining down at us as a reminder that, where power and money rule, the innocent are always the ones who pay the highest price.

Artist
United Kingdom
We are passionate artists and art lovers with wide ranging tastes and interests. Our long range project is the creation of 'aegian' as an aesthetic hermaphrodite, trying to express the many facets of their being.

While his better half prefers to remain mysterious until she has decided how to start our journal, Mr A admits to having a London degree in Botany & Zoology and owning a succession of film and digital cameras. I am the man behind the lens, so there may not be many images of me submitted. We love beauty and I search for it amongst the mundane backgrounds of everyday reality as well as at fabulous gardens like the ones seen in some gallery pictures.

I've left another dA portal open at your work with a comment that has now failed to post several times. I like abstract expressionism but can't paint or draw very well and so 'treating' photographs is my way of trying to emulate some of the masters. Your painting does for me what the notes indicated you were trying to make it do, remind me of what weathering and patination can do to industrial materials, which is something I find interesting,and how much naturul beauty there is to be found in these effects.
