HIDDEN HISTORY (article first published : 2007-06-17)

Sfiso Ka-Mkame is currently presenting an exhibition of found objects and mixed media at The African Art Centre at 94 Florida Rd, Morningside.

Sfiso evokes a hidden history in his new works, which refer to the materials he has found that have past usage and using the image of the mask and the ancestors to explore other dimensions in that theme. That he achieves such startling results using such modest materials is further testament to his integrity and vision as an artist.

At a time when so many of South Africa’s ‘leading’ artists appear to be led themselves by the dominant trends in the art capitals of the world, it is refreshing to know that Sfiso Ka-Mkame is charting his own course.
