NGUNI 6 Phuzigwebu- ‘What Drinks Froth’

What I particularly loved about the name of ‘Phuzigwebu’ was the memories it brought back of the living on the farm as a boy. The huge ‘chibuku’ beer lorry would arrive from town, and fill the forty four gallon drums with beer for the pub on the weekend. As the bowser dispensed its torrent of beer into the drums the froth would bubble bubble up and you could scoop it up in your hand and lick it. It was a sour sweet sorghum of sorts. This painting was done with a palette knife, like a builders trowel, scooping paint off the palette and smearing it onto the canvas.

The colours froth from the cow onto the distant canvas.
Its the purple and mauves found in the shadows of the froth. It was the grey area, between being too young to drink beer and getting a taste of the colour.

A New Dawn
Original Oil on Canvas
40cm x 50cm

The 21st of November this year - I was sitting on a step in South Africa when the news came through that the President of Zimbabwe, 37 years in, had resigned. I’ve painted these rocks, so typical of the hills in the South of Zimbabwe. They are the building blocks of an empire. They have weathered his dictatorship as have the people. It felt like someone was suddenly standing taller than the sky, waving a flag, saying come home. There is an incredible sense of hope. Its explosive. Suddenly it feels like there isn’t going to be enough paint.
