Ndebele and Apple I

oil on canvas

Since ever I have been drawn to the graphic art of the Ndebele women who paint their houses and their surroundings in bright and earthy colours in oddly geomatric patterns.
Their combination of vivid colour and black and white exudes stark contrast emitting the idea of strong light which for me is the essence of Africa, the kingdom of the sun.
Here the juxtaposition of pure 2D graphic and 3D figurative creates a strange pull - nothing seems to be "right"!
I love it!
