An Online Art Gallery by Grady Zeeman
South African Illusion
The on-going violence in South Africa is the theme of Zeeman’s South African Illusion. While the world turns a blind eye and the South African government denies the severity, Farm murders are on the increase in South Africa. All life lost are a tragedy, but the cruelty of these farm attacks are devastating….. mothers are raped and gutted in front of their children, fathers hacked with machetes or grannies raped and strangled. So easily poverty is being blamed, but if that was the case, the victims would have been robbed, not raped and slaughtered like animals.
Her uninhibited and evocative portrayal of her subjects, emphasizes her own devastation and her deep connection with the land of South Africa and the African culture.
