WALL presents a collection of works where the formal affinities between the painted and incised wood panels of CECIL SKOTNES and LUCKY SIBIYA; drawings of SYDNEY KUMALO and EZROM LEGAE and the bronzes of ZOLTAN BORBEREKI, EDOARDO VILLA and SYDNEY KUMALO are clearly discernible.

“The human figure dominates
throughout their works
inviting narrative as well
as symbolic readings. ”

Educated within a European aesthetic tradition, these artists forged an approach to image-making which drew inspiration from indigenous art practices and contemporary modernism developing a unique South African artistic language.
