`Women In Process' series by artist Nomvula Hoko
"I want my art not only to shape what we become but also how we become. I am a woman in process. I delight in the poetry of life that takes its form from the lines of life, that twists and extends impossibly. It spits and drips and as sweet and wild as life itself. Part of my process its playing with depth, foreground, pattern and emotion.
The artwork: "Ngalizwa izwi labo". The work invites the audience to examine the relationship with their assigned genders in their bodies, but also to reflect on the nature of `self' as a deep-seated marker of inner being and spirit. The artist draws her spiritual faith into the narrative in her work and reflects on this dynamic in her .`I see spirituality as part of my prayer and faith because is the only way to keep the connection between me and them. Using photography as interpretation to make an objective understanding through their clothes and body gestures about the consciousness of their energy with me and my cultural believe. "As an abstract painter and printmaker I figured I should consider photography pictures and use myself as a metaphor. Multiple panels in progress patiently building up layers and layers. My art is loaded with metaphors and fused into harmonious whole, some colours dominate the space while others recedes like a whisper, quiet but instant. As human beings we have an interacted with religion and spiritual relationship not being aware because it existed for us because of our complex system of the inner world and purpose in our life."
