South African Ndebele culture art, with its geometric patterns and bright colours is the inspiration for this body of work. The patterns feature vivid colours with a defined black outline, as well as added beads and crochet work for depth and texture.
About the artist’s work:
With such a wealth of colour, shape and texture available on the house walls of a local tribe, how could Rina not be inspired? Her love of all that is Africa, it’s energy, vibrancy and haphazard structure, provide for much of her emotional input to her work. Rina’s multi-dimensional interpretation of her external environment evokes an emotional response and provides a talking point for any space.
About the Ndebele Tribes in South Africa:
The vibrant symbols and expressions communicate personal prayers, self-identification, values, emotions, and marriage for the Ndebele tribe in South Africa. The women of the tribe are often the tradition carriers and the main designers of the wall art of their home. The tradition and style of house painting is passed down through the families from generation to generation by the mothers. A well-painted home shows that the woman of the household is a good wife and mother.
