About "Xhosa Women"
This original oil painting is about the domestic life-styles of two very different Xhosa ladies. I took the reference photos at the Cambridge Informal Settlement near my home in East London. The lady in the fore-ground is a Sangoma. Its Monday morning and she is seen cooking up a potfull of pigs feet. The clay mask that she has worn for the weekend has cracked and is partially faded. Behind her is a typical Mother-figure, seen doing her families washing. Both ladies are working with water. My love of Africa and its people inspired this artwork. Thank you.
I am a 43 year old professional fine artist. I work full-time from my East London based art studio, in South Africa. I have been an active fine artist for 20 years, and have been commissioned to do many oil paintings and/or pencil drawings by a global clientele.
My latest two oil paintings were exhibited at the 2010 Grahamstown National Arts Festival, one as part of the SIGWESILE art exhibition (Albany History Museum), and the other as part of the TOWNSHIP LIFE/XPIERIENCE art exhibition (Barrat Art Centre).
