Hey there folks!
This stunning self-portrait by Keneilwe (@keneilwe.aesthetic), has me in awe! I am so intrigued by her gaze! It is not quite directed at the viewer, but so close it makes me pause to carefully study it’s direction. There is a wonderful dichotomy of softness stemming from the placement of her arms, hands, and hair; and fierce inner strength channeled with that almost-eye-contact gaze. The complexity of her facial expression and her pose communicates a beautiful tension.
Thank you so much Keneilwe for sharing your phenomenal work with us. I am mesmerized by your vision and find your work so inspiring!
Please make sure to check out her IG gallery for more inspiring works of art. .

I thoroughly enjoyed designing this exhibition worksheet for ‘Gathering Strands’ a retrospective exhibition of the work of amazing artist, anti-apartheid activist, political prisoner and educator - Lionel Davis. This exhibition is curated by The District Six museum in Cape Town and was first exhibited at the Iziko South African National Gallery and will be travelling to Graham’s Town and then Cuba! I absolutely love his work so I recommend you give him a Google and go and see the exhibition if you can.
This worksheet is printed on a single sheet of A2 paper. A straight line is cut down the middle to create a foldable 16 page booklet that can also stand on its own. Swipe to watch the video to see it how it works.
