Shepherd Mbanya

b. 1965, Bishop Lavis, Cape Town, South Africa; lives in Khayelitsha.

Shepherd Mbanya was born in Bishop Lavis on the northern outskirts of Cape Town, but was raised in Queenstown in the Eastern Cape. Mentored by Isaac Makeleni, Mbanya’s evocative sculptures and paintings use narrative forms to communicate his often critical views on contemporary issues.

Education

Sivuyile College of Education.
Mbanya is a largely self-taught artist.

Artist Statement

From the Against the Grain catalogue:

"Mbanya applies a range of visual idioms, often within the same work, ranging from the lifelike to the abstract, the literal to the conceptual... Mbanya is strongly invested in narrative as a means of articulating and communicating his views on contemporary issues. His position is often boldly critical of power and politics, giving voice to dispossessed communities whose visions of a brighter future remain clouded by unfulfilled promises."

- Mario Pissarra

Randolph Hartzenberg

b. 1948, Cape Town, South Africa; lives in Cape Town.

In painting, installation and performance, Randolph Hartzenberg produces quiet, seemingly un-obtrusive works that gradually reveal a great depth of symbolic content. Hartzenberg’s deliberate use of normal objects acts as the surface of his practice of thoughtful political and conceptual engagement, exploring questions of power, labour and race within South African society.

Peter Clarke

Peter E Clarke

b. 1929 Simon’s Town, d. 2014, Ocean View, South Africa.
Peter Clarke was, indeed is, a giant. Evidence of his achievements are narrated in numerous tributes, obituaries and testimonies. Clarke’s graphic works and paintings affirm the dignity of everyday Black life. Exploring flattened, angular forms, and working with highly deliberate palettes, Clarke’s images reflect a spirit of experimentation, digging beyond the typical conventions of landscape and portrait work that defined his times.
