CURRENT EXHIBITION - GALLERY MOMO'S 20TH ANNIVERSARY
DECEMBER 14 I MARCH 29 2024
21 SEP 2023 – 14 OCT 2023
This series, “Ingoma Yomhlaba,” is inspired by ukuthwasa and aims to indicate the healing process that must take place as a result of historical colonial trauma ingrained on black people. Colonialism has left deep scars in our minds and bodies particularly black individuals. My art reflects on old traditions as a way to find healing from this pain in today’s South Africa.

“With the Spirit Matter series, I am painting in reverse. The canvas is dyed with a dark black or indigo. I then begin bleaching parts of the surface to reveal lighter areas. The process happens slowly, in many layers, as I attempt to encourage an ethereal light into the artwork. The result is hopefully very open and suggestive of a numinous experience.
