Mother

9 November 2023

Participating: Thando Ngwenya

Curated by: Ivy Rihlampfu
 
In a world filled with countless stories of love and sacrifice, there is none more enduring than the story of a mother sacrificing all for her children. It is a tale of unwavering devotion, boundless strength and endless love. In every culture of the world, the role of a mother is universally cherished and revered. Mothers are the architects of our earliestmemories, the silent strength in times of adversity, and the source of unconditional love.
 
The solo exhibition by Thando explores three pillar women that have played a huge role in his life. For his mother, it's the simple things—her happy-making gestures and the tales she tells him. For Thando, his grandmother represents an endless supply of gratitude, and he will always be in awe of  he contributions she has made to his life. His sister is a pillar of support for him without ceasing. His body of work does not demand attention, yet the weight is felt and thus creates a different atmosphere.
 
We are given a front row seat as an audience to articulate and indulge vivid color schemes, portraiture and the wording that marries the artwork in  nity. Through a captivating blend of mixed media artworks by Thando. The ‘’Mother’’ exhibition attempts to help us remember and celebrate mothers as they are cherished and revered in every corner of the world. For the artist, art serves as a catalyst for bringing forth honesty as well as for getting a glimpse of and experiencing the revered woman.
