Throwback to the Grad Show in February. I found this lovely picture of Ulriche next to my sculpture of Krotoa-Eva. Shoutout to this awesome lady (and fellow artist!) who let me make a mould of her face twice 🙌👏

"In a certain sense all of us, by the simple fact of being born of woman, are 'hijos de la Chingada', sons of Eve." - Octavio Paz, 'El Laberinto de la Soledad' (1950).

"Listen. To live is to be marked. To live is to change, to acquire the words of a story, and that is the only celebration we mortals really know." - Barbara Kingsolver, 'The Poisonwood Bible' (1998). Detail of 'La Virgen (The Saviour)', 2016. Photograph by @leylaheylenphotography.

#tbt to the Grad Show opening night a few months ago. The lovely lady with me is Macellin Kwawa. She used to work at the company where I've been buying all my Plaster of Paris bandages to make the body casts with since 2015. She came out all the way to campus to see my work in person.

My three stooges at the Cape Town Art Fair in February. La Lengua, La Llorona (now affectionately referred to as "The Little Villain") and La Malinche. We had an impromptu set-up so that a potential client could see them in person. It was supposed to only be No Man's Land V in the booth but then we swapped him out and brought in the ladies. I was still busy dressing them when the fair opened for the day but people thought it was a performance art piece so we were all good.

"Perhaps the truth was too complicated, and double-sided, for her to understand, but it is clear from a jubilant entry in Van Riebeeck's journal - 'Eva says she has a Dutch heart' - that the Dutch commander's interest in her was crucial to relations at the Cape." - S.A.M. Marshall (2004)

While the dominant Aztec world-view during La Malinche’s time was fiercely patriarchal, an ancient sense of matriarchy underpins a majority of images depicting supreme deities. For example, various references have been found within allegorical Aztec imagery that allude to a figure that is often represented as governing “side by side with the King”. The significance of this figure lies in the fact that, although it frequently adopts the visual form of a man, it carries the name of “the Terrible Mother: The Snake Woman”. This “Terrible Mother” could just as easily be associated with either La Malinche, La Llorona or Coatlicue, the Aztec goddess of Birth and Decay. “La Malinche” was one of the primary names that Chicana Feminists adopted to describe the concept of “the native woman”. Naturally, like La Malinche herself, the idea of the Native Woman has always been described by numerous names; “Coatlicue” was amongst those that soon followed.

"How changeable this African climate is.. The West wind, which had by its violence caused a boisterous sea, and during the last two days had threatened everything with destruction, had [...] gone down completely, followed by such calm weather that not the slightest motion could be observed in the air, whilst the bay was as smooth and bright as a mirror. " - Dutch East India Company Journals (9 July 1674). Remembering Krotoa-Eva, 'The Woman Between'. Her legacy still encourages South Africans to interrogate their own racial and cultural heritage more than five centuries after her death on Robben Island in 1674. #disrememberings #evakrotoa #chingada #virginofguadalupe #colonialhistory #southafricanhistory #figurativesculpture #sculptureart #recycledrubberart #michaelisschooloffineart #michaelis2016 #nicolaroos #contemporarysculpture #contemporaryart
