Fawa Conradie’s watercolour work I only have one match no.4 consisting of 480 hand painted matches is currently included in the exhibition In Conversation with Colour Symphony at the Jan Rupert Art Centre, Graaff-Reinet.

My personal interpretation of this work is best described by Rachel Platten’s Fight Song

“Like a small boat on the ocean, setting big waves into motion . . . I might only have one match, but can make an explosion . . .”

We, as individual little matches each are able to simply have a small influence on others in our vicinity and yet we all possess the power to “burn down a city”. To me, this is all about the power and significance of often overlooked “small things” in life.
