About

Solo exhibition of enamel plate portraits by South African based artist Ivy Rihlampfu.

Ivy documents the everyday heroines she come across frequently. 

“Some are found selling vegetables, sweets and fruits in the streets of Johannesburg – I’m drawn to their grace and humility. The women I document embody strength, courage and effort but often their actions are unseen or not taken into account. I’m motivated to uncover these actions, by taking a closer look and learning more about them. I’m interested to realize more about these women as I portray them in my artwork, from painting on the enamel plates to unrefined sketches as I sit and talk with them about their on-going daily labour.  Currently I am documenting these women on different types of enamel plate using oil paints. Through more detection, gaining insight to these women, I am stimulated to celebrate them and to investigate what it means to be a black modern-day woman in contrast to the women I document.”
