The theme of resurrection and life after death is portrayed in my work.

My sculptural work deals with the theme of resurrection and life after death. I attempt to portray how it is possible to bring back to life something that was thought to be dead (mostly symbolically and mythologically) through my choice of subject matter and use of medium, technique and installation.

By incorporating light and bone with the concrete (using PPC Cement), I am looking at the symbolical and mythological meanings created, and making it clear how the archetype of the resurrection myth can still be interpreted as current, appropriate and valid in contemporary South African visual art.
