Zondlile captures the unrestrained joy of Kiko, leaping with vibrant energy, in a dam filled with life. In a bejewelled explosion of gold, crystals and beads, Zondlile meticulously stitches the beads onto fabric, to encapsulate a wondrous moment, bursting with vivacity, movement and life.
The story of the Artists of Ubuhle, is one where the artists celebrate their purpose, by creating extra ordinary beautiful works of Art. Each artwork telling a story, serving as a memoir to moments in their lives. Their courage and determination to prevail, against all odds, as artists, inspiring and giving hope to all who see their art and hear their story.
I support this outstanding project and urge those who can help to do generously
We were overwhelmed by the beauty and artistry of the work, the scale of the pieces and intricacy of the beading,
The most soulfully exquisite, artfully crafted work
I sat and wept, overwhelmed not only by the beauty of their world and it’s vibrancy but for these women who are striving to succeed and survive!
Abstract in their appearance and masterful in their construction the beaded panels speak to a new dynamic for the medium.
