About The Artwork

The Unravelling was created on a South African Navigation Chart of Cape Seal to Cape St. Frances. It means disengaging our sense of self from the titles and roles you play. It means peeling off all the names you’ve ever been called or called yourself. It means recognizing that any role or identity that might have once helped you navigate the world is now holding you back from a new experience. As long as we stay attached to our identities, we remain blind to another way or movement in life. When the ego’s identities and labels go unquestioned for years and years, they wrap us up like mummies, so tightly and completely that we can no longer move or see. And in that condition, we have little access to our souls, which lie in wait beneath all our ego’s fancy clothes.

Im a female artist from Cape Town, South Africa. I have been painting for the last 20 years, with no formal art education. My journey started with a box of Vintage Dress Patterns which was turned into a skirt on a metal wired Mannequin and from there to canvas. I have sold many pieces all over the world like Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Madagascar, San Francisco, New York etc. I have exhibited in London at the Art of Africa Gallery. Currently Im working with good old fashion Brown Paper and Vintage Navigation Charts. I only sketch woman and make use of pencils, charcoal and Acrylic paint.
