GUM’S IMPRESSIVE STRIDES IN ART
My experience in Miami was filled with more highs and lows. The international art community was so welcoming. It was blissful. I enjoyed the space, the food, the youthful energy, the ambiance etcetera, I enjoy the cultural experience which is quite different from the previous places that I’ve visited. I showcased Free da Gum and my latest body of work at pulse Miami art fair. The only low I would consider is the rand against the dollar. But it didn’t take away the experience. Tell us about your latest work you launched at Miami’s Art Basel?
The latest body of work explores the transitions and phases that the Xhosa woman undergoes. Starting from Intombi to Umfazi until uMama oKhulileyo. I have attempted to narrate how these women undergo these transitions
