About "Bark Torso"
This is a photograph taken of a Xhosa woman preparing to get dressed for a performance. I travelled with the lady to Namibia so they could do a collaboration performance with the San people. There are traces of the San ( nomadic tribe) living once with the Xhosa's and leaving behind treasures. In this case the instruments are the trace, so the idea was to re-introduce the two tribes again and share the skills with the instruments and performances.
An Ode to the Woman of Africa. They have maintained our heritage and culture. Each artwork sold, proceeds will be given to the woman in the picture as well as a community project introducing solar ovens into their region. 15 years ago, i spent time with a traditional healer, during the period i had a dream, of all the tradional woman dressed in a vast landscape, i floated through them. I told the healer of the dream, he said to me that the dream meant one day i would help all these women. so, this series is a strong locamotive to make the dream come to fruition.
