About "African Time"
A young African mother sits with her baby on her knee. The mother looks imploringly out of the canvas. This could be a content and happy scenario, except for a black and white photograph of a young African man taped to the wall behind . So where is he, - is he dead, gone to seek his fortune in the city, will he ever return? And so she will just wait,[0x1].. that wonderful thing called [0x1]African Time[0x1].
Having been born and brought up in Central Africa , I have always been humbled by the vast canvas and the infinite palette of hues, shades and colours that Mother Earth so reverently offers us. As much as the forever changing expansive skies, the never ending kaleidoscope of land and water, so too am I inspired by the fragility and expression of humankind, and it is all of these that form the basis of my subject material.
