Exhibition: Charting, Featuring Work By Loyiso Mkize, Cape Town

If you're curious to see some of Kwezi creator Loyiso Mkize's portraiture fine-art work you'll find a few pieces on display as part of the Charting group exhibition at the new Eclectica Contemporary gallery in Cape Town. The show "includes practices and materials familiar from art history but which push these boundaries and explore uncharted territories of representation, technique and theory", according to the gallery's director, Shamiela Tyer.

Mkize's works The Traveler (above left) and Ukhonziwe (above right) are featured.

The exhibition has been curated by Andrew Lamprecht, who says: "Loyiso Mkize's canvasses also speak of a gravitas while being at pains to convey a stability and deep sense of pride in African identity. Though drawing on an almost surrealist artistic language, his work projects into the future while drawing on history and legacies of the past."
