ARTIST STATEMENT:

This body of work is the result of relearning our collective national history, giving power to those whose voices we tried to silence. An exploration of displacement, our historical interwoven connection to a place and the visual reminder of Table mountain whose shadow bore witness to all the lies our history books told

 

Artist Bio:

Mariëtte is a self-taught artist who has been practicing full-time, living and working in the picturesque village of Kommetjie in Cape Town since 2018. Prior to 2018 she had pursued careers in Osteopathic medicine and academia. She has always been passionate in womxn’s empowerment and holds a Master’s degree in public health. During her academic career she wrote several academic research articles on various womxn’s reproductive health and rights topics.

 Her work is  influenced by womxn’s empowerment and her socio-political views and often represented from a feminist stance with a pinch of humour thrown in for good measure.

Currently her art practice centres predominantly around printmaking, which she often uses in conjunction with other mediums such as embroidery, acrylic and watercolour. She is passionate about the environment and strongly feels that creative efforts should make a conscious effort to minimise their environmental impact. For this reason she uses water-based mediums in her art making and strives to maintain a low-toxic and environmentally considerate studio.

‘Rise Exhibition’, 44 on Long, Cape Town, December 2019
