MDUDUZI XAKAZA (article first published : 2001-04-6)

Mduduzi Xakaza, Education Officer of the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg, graduated with a fine arts degree from the University of Fort Hare in 1992 and a BA FA (Hons) from UNISA in1996. He is currently completing his Masters Degree at the University of Natal.

The Tatham will host an exhibition of his works from April 12 to May 31. Xakaza’s works in oil or chalk pastel frequently depict original, unspoiled rural landscapes from Mapumulo, his KZN birthplace. They also reflect his personal identification with the land upon which cultural, political, social and economic forces have left their mark. It is a symbolic token of his reclamation of and tribute to the land.

Included in the exhibition will be series of prints made at The Caversham Press with Malcolm Christian since 1999.

Mduduzi Xakaza will be artist in residence for three days while his paintings and graphics are on display. The public is invited to watch him work on one or more of his landscape paintings from 10h30 to 13h30 from April 17 to 19.
