Entsizwa IIEntsizwa is a mountain in the Eastern Cape. It is situated in the Alfred Nzo District. The mountain faces Sugarbush village, which is my home. The artworks are positioned as wooden door frames with an interpretation of the mountain in the paintings. When creating these artworks, I found myself in moments of contemplation, where there are lingering more intensely filled with silence when looking out (the door) at the scenery of Ntsizwa. In the summer there is a lot of rain, thunder, and lightning in my village. As kids, we were told to sit still and be quiet until the storm passes. Looking out the door, Ntsizwa will be glistening with water running down its dark form.
