Painting Explanation by Nonhlanhla Mathe
The painting portrays people’s lives in society. Whereby the top background from right to left represents a transition from a dark difficult past as a nation to a more prosperous and promising future. The bottom composition is more a display of love, healing and reconciliation as inspired by the account in John 5: 2-9a. The part with vegetation is representative of the potential economic productivity since the nation has an agriculture-based economy. I do abstract and semi abstract figurative paintings with lots of texture and a colorful finish. I am very much inspired by people’s lives, the way they relate to each other and the way they view things. As a woman myself I focus mainly on women. Empowerment is also displayed in the work.
