In/Dependence - Circa Johannesburg 3rd March 2019                                                                                                                                           Hazel Friedman Review

After seven years recording in Africa’s Great Rift Valley, the In/Dependence body of art offers a moving insight through powerful visual metaphors in both subject and materials, documenting the trajectory of the traditional communities as they navigate 'development'. The individuality of the works of art using concrete, hand blown glass, bronze, bending ply, digital printing and charcoal drawings combines to create a sense of place. 

In/Dependence firmly places the viewer in in a landscape compelling consideration regarding alternative outcomes confronting communities “living in different centuries simultaneously” – Arundhati Roy.
