About "Hold Me"

For tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today' - African proverb
During the time I worked on my Master's Degree, I travelled extensively through Africa in order to collect research material. I've always had a true love and respect for this mystical, wild continent. It deepened though my travels as I got to know the land, the culture, the people and animals. Later in life, as the growing threat on our Rhino population escalated, I grew more and more aware of this problem. As a result, I am deeply concerned about the destruction that is taking place. During 2014, in South Africa alone a staggering 1,215 rhinos were killed by poachers. That's one every eight hours.

About Sua

Sua van der Westhuizen

My main focus during my studies was the female figure. Feminism and humanism, freedom and bondage, power and vulnerability, youth and old age are contrasts in my work. I try to reach the viewer through the way these contrasts balance. Everyone is exposed to transience. The juxtaposition between transience and youth is a big inspiration.

Sua was born in 1969 in South Africa. She matriculated in 1986 from Three Rivers High School with a distinction in Fine Arts. She completed her Masters degree in Fine Arts at the University of Pretoria in 1994. Sua found the fine art market unsustainable and sought employment within the advertising environment. In 1997 she founded her own design and advertising agency. It has only been since 2009 that Sua has re-entered the fine arts arena for the first time after 12 years. Whilst woman and art have remained a central theme in Sua's work, the interaction between man and animal is now a visible theme.

Sua Van Der Westhuizen obtained a BA Fine Art (Sculpture), at the University of Pretoria in 1990 and a MA Fine Arts (Sculpture), at the University of Pretoria in 1994.
