Thabo Motseki's body of work explores a visual account as an attempt to record the rhythms and patterns of several periods in his life through lines and mark making. For him, the action of carving a lino plate is an act of removal and re-looking. The marks in/on the plate represent his interpretation of time and life as a rhythm, pulse, negotiation and pattern. He records the consistencies and inconsistencies in these concepts, represented as abstract, and open for negotiation and conversation. His work is visually grounded on the African continent, yet it unpacks and negotiates urban themes and motifs such as healing, scarification and vibrations offered by his immediate environment, yet global in influence. Thabo has had multiple solo exhibitions with notable studios and institutions such as Artist Proof Studio, 13th Floor Gallery, the Workers' Museum as well as Museum Africa. He has also worked as a printing technician at the Wits School of Arts, specializing in relief and printing process and silk-screening and Llithography Planographic printing processes. Thabo is the co-founder and current CFO of the The Arts Company Soweto Pty Ltd (TACS).
