ARTIST'S NOTES ON 
MELTING POT FACES

Collaboration Work By TABE

'Melting Pot' is a piece that comments metaphorically about the diverse makeup of our society and the messiness of our connections with each other physically.

The work questions stereotypes; how on a whole we are judged by genetic elements based on race, colour, gender, sexual orientation, age, healthiness, culture, wealth, fashion the list goes on.

Can such a primitive characteristic of prejudice and judgment advance the collective human condition or will it become the catalyst of our undoing as a species?

ARTIST'S NOTES ON 
LOOKING GLASS
ready-made series
multimedia, on board
behind glass and wooden frame


The distortion of the work by reflection of light through the glass, gives the artwork a sense of movement and of being alive and changeable. Analogous to the clarity of seeing blurry things through a looking glass. The magic behind the Looking Glass series is that the pieces are uncomplicated, ordinary, and familiar mass manufactured objects, which are taken for granted in our day to day lives. By changing the function of the ready-made, I have modified and ultimately metamorphosed into, what I believe, are beautiful art works unique amongst themselves. 

The art work encased inside the looking glass, are fragments of pieces of my thoughts, little ideas and experiments that I collect and preserve.  They are small versions of larger works that I produced for art shows, commissions or just for experimentation. The variety of genres and materials are what make these artworks unique and individual which is a far cry from their intended manufactured purpose originally was.
 
 
ARTIST'S NOTES ON 
SMASHED RSA ICONS

oil, original photograph, recycled smashed glass on wood
62cm x 62cm

I have experimented a lot with glass in my art. I have incorporated many different types of glass as the material has the ability to offer endless creative possibilities. Whether the material is melted, sand blasted, sea blasted, crushed or just plain smashed, being recycled, the glass tells its own story.

The Smashed RSA Icons works have obvious borrowed Pop Art roots with a South African theme. The smashed glass in these works questions the notion of what art is. I have purposely made the work clean and easy on the eye and familiar, however the very fact that the glass is in a frame in the traditional sense of presentation and is now smashed glass, comments on the fragility of art, the aesthetic norms of art. The broken-ness has its own beautiful, unpredictable quality of reflections that distorts and changes the work beneath.  

In my personal opinion the imperfect glass heightens the power of the work beneath, as it reflects qualities in the art that are seen only with the facets of reflected light and changes what we see as we move in front of it. This establishes its unique one of a kind artistic expression.
