Description

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work changes and evolves all the time, I call it abstract
because I am breaking form, and the ideas that I am trying to
express are abstract too, but my work is actually pure symbolism. My art talks about love, determination, and exuberance.
It is a ritual.

My grandmothers are sangomas, hence I experienced a lot of
rituals as a child and I studied a lot of rituals from
different parts of the world at the beginning of my career.
I believe that abstraction actually comes from Africa.
I made a point to study more about abstract art to see how I can take abstraction further, deeper.

Art is a ritual with a specific purpose. Art can be something that builds people, builds the spirit or it can be something that is
critical. My purpose is to built the spirit. My art wants to elevate the spirit onto another level. That is my quest.
