This Masters thesis (History of art, UKZN) is a compilation of reformulated exhibition catalogue essays on three South African black artists and considers how indigenous African and changing cultural world-view impacts the interpretation of visual artworks.
The artists are: The late Trevor Makhoba, who can be considered a master of the African oral genre in its visual form, one that goes back to the praise-poets of old.
Azaria Mbatha, who lives in voluntary exile in Sweden after being one of the first students at the Lutheran mission art-school of Rorke's Drift.
Mbatha is known for his sequential narrative scenes in highly contrasting linocut-prints reflecting his African indigenous idiom and story-telling roots.
Finally the late Cyprian Shilakoe, a Bakoni (north Sotho) who also studied at Rorke's Drift and is known for his deeply evocative and brooding aquatint-etchings reflective of his cultural beliefs, especially those on the realms between the worlds of the living and their ancestors.
Yvonne Winters is the Head of Campbell Collections,UKZN, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, having been the curator of African contemporay art and ethnography for many years.
In this work she has written much that seeks to give insight into decontextualised museum artefacts and mediate their African cultural context to non-African audiences.
