More from the artist: “My work explores beauty constructs as well as its psychological and physical impact on African women through the search of my own identity and those around me. I create moments within domestic spaces by using different mediums like acrylic with oil paint, charcoal, ink, collage from personal photographs, newspaper and magazines. Female silhouettes represent the "perfect women " perceived by society or the “absorber” that’s absorbs from social media. The moments I create in domestic spaces are dialogues between perceived beauty standards, and stereotypes which function to both challenge and embrace African women. The Barbie doll, a primary inspiration in my work, is used with other feminine objects or symbols with associations to African women, representing thoughts, misconceptions, perceptions and emotions. These spaces allow me to create conversations and interrogate notions of beauty.” Exhibitions 2018 Participation in group exhibition, “animal in distress” with Little Artist and JSE Deutsche Bank at Grahams Fine Art, Johannesburg 2019 “Louis Khela Maqhubela & Douglas Portway” presented by Artist Proof Studio and Strauss & Co at the RMB Turbine Art Fair.
