NGUNI 8 Hwaqahwaga – ‘Of Being Overcast And Gloomy’

It is inexplicable to those who have explanations. It is not silent but it is mute. It is horribly dark in a world where the grey’s are supposed to carry colour. Utter despondency and dejection looming over you no matter how high you try and climb the ladder. One of those old three step ladders in the garden shed. With the wooden foot wells, strong enough to reach the rafters. The floors get taller.

Tears run on the ink because the slope has become more slippery. How do you stop thinking about thinking? Especially when you’re thinking about thinking about thinking. It is that black sinking mud that steals your feet. This painting is a tribute to those who have explanations, and share them. Even if its just a voice calling from the top of the well, saying ‘you’re ok’.

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.
