About The Artwork

The Conversation of the Man IV : The Escape Time has since become in the present day, a precious commodity. So many people have their lives all tangled up in systems which consume the bigger share of their lives. They sail through life satisfying routine schedules and fulfilling fixtures in which they absolutely find no joy. This piece serves to set forth the appeal that a time to pause is essential and needful, it comes as a reminder that the better portion of life exists from without the clads of a routine carved regularised life. We might as well think back to the last time we did go for a dance, or sang to song, sat for meditation or clean air, reflected in gratitude or actively engaged in sharing love with others. The peace and benefit that lies outside of a regularised life (one of work, bills, watching over family), cannot be underestimated. We all need to reach out to it to appreciate its healing power. Portrayed on the left is a solo dance and on the far right, a dance of two. The first is a symbol of a truly free and wholly healthy own-self, while the later is a characterization of the overflow of the love and freedom, passed over to another in an intimate dance. All eyes are closed in reflection and gratitude, the central figure with his chest expanded and his nose up as in the inhalation of pure refreshing air. It is this freedom and refreshment where all our sanity lies, in leaping up to reserve self some time to breathe, to release and moreover appreciate the finer things beneath the blurry patches of life.

GreatJoy Ndlovu is a full-time visual artist based in Johannesburg, South Africa. He was born in the city of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. He went on to study Art at Cyrene Mission in the Southern part of Matabeleland region in Zimbabwe. He has been enjoying the summits of art world prominence within South Africa and an immense recognition of his world class talent across.continents , exhibiting in local and international art fairs and galleries . Greatjoy retains an ever – growing number of faithful collectors worldwide . His current body of work renders more of its focus on the portrayal of masculinity, identity and the abstract representation of the nature of thought conceptions, particularly in light of mindset generation as expressed in his 2019 series “Conversations of a Man”. His principal theme circumnavigates around merging motion and emotion to arouse mental images wrapped in synchrony to his style of art. GreatJoy’s style notably kisses expressionistic and representationalistic ideas with figurative drawings, while retaining an enthralling tinge of abstraction that frequently lurks in his works. Included also in his works are mind piercing forms of portraiture which seek to decipher internal truths and meanings with such lightness of detail, rather than merely beaming goodly but shallow superficial semblances. GreatJoy’s work starts from light-hearted, experimental sketches that develop in to large scale detailed works or even an entire series without losing an experimental element that so characterizes his work. His work is strongly influenced by challenges incurred by men in society. It aims to table talk and to inspire men and the greater society to raise and tackle these challenges with an elevated degree of seriousness, and it also presses more on the need to help socialize and educate our young boys differently. These notions are carved out from personal experiences lived and are contained and well referenced in his autobiographical art book, “The Path to GreatJoy”. The book has come to resonate with many art enthusiasts around the globe as an engrossing read for keeps for passionate art lovers. GreatJoy’s canvas stands a testator of his exploratory genius with diverse material, evidenced in the manner and the piecing up of his riveting techniques, as revealed and shed across much of his art series.
