David Edwards Support Cause

For many years as a student in the 1970's I travelled the passenger trains from Springs to Randfontein and became familiar with their platforms, their antiquated segregated amenities, and carriages and the way they underpinned the eastern and western reefs of gold, without which there would be no Gauteng and Bezuidenhout's Farm might still be raising cattle. Kensington, Gauteng

My fundraising need is to commemorate the railway line which spanned the gold deposits and reflect on its now be-nighted circumstances.

Decay is never politically neutral but it is the textures and forms which interest me most and inspire this exhibition, and necessitate this fundraising project, for which I wish to raise money.

Thanks Dave for the superb chronicle of our sad times. May the depth of our demise spark a renewed effort to finally build the country we set our sights on in 1994.
Your talent can not be quantified

Good eye. Thanks for imaging beauty in squalor and the uniquely beautiful rural SA in places off the track.
