About FACE

5 April 2019

‘About FACE’ is a collection of artworks incorporating mostly portraits which all convey specific second thoughts as opposed to be taken at face value. These portraits, whether embroidered, drawn or lino-printed are conceptual vehicles, which form part of a journey redressing certain aspects of female identity. Actual teabags are sewn together and incorporated in certain artworks, as this medium becomes the message which symbolises the ‘home-presence’ as well as the submissive aspect of woman.
“I attempt to counteract the undervaluation of women and craft by combining the subversive strategy of embroidery and stitching, as well as torn imagery of topographical veteran maps of the Union of South Africa in order to disrupt certain historic patriarchal hierarchies”.
