Internal Landscapes by Fatima Tayob Moosa
Fatima Tayob Moosa's latest body of work explores the effects of a forced hibernation and her response to it. The artist believes that isolation is not a natural process for humans, and yet, that it can offer the opportunity to slow down and reflect deeply on who we are. Moosa's works are an intimate, visceral reaction to her own experience. A place where thoughts and feelings elude logic and can come to rest. They can be seen as internal landscapes where the visceral and bodily meet, in a discovery of the fragility and strength within femininity.
Life, Death & All the Fear In-Between by Ilené Bothma
With her latest body of work, artist Ilené Bothma lifts the veil on the particular anxieties of motherhood, as well as its inextricable love. 'Life, Death and All the Fear In-Between' is a series of extraordinarily detailed portraits of her two young children, herself and her husband - all seemingly peacefully asleep. The translucent skin and the poses of the sleepers, with their hands resting gently on their chests, or their forms obscured under fabric, give us pause, though. Are they only asleep?
Bothma uses the conceit of these somnolent subjects to explore in oil paint and watercolour one of the central tenets of human life: the deeply existential angst around dying and, more specifically, the death of loved ones.
