Malebo Molokoane - Face to Face

The artwork explores human personal and emotional being, yet it is seen through the traits of the biological father versus the father figure that is revealed. They capture human emotions through the representation of the face with its infinite expressions. We can be overwhelmed by so many emotions all at once and then not know how to feel anymore. Hence, we often question whether the face we see in the mirror is ours and from where our thoughts come. The exploration of the concealed faces and I use them to convey my message. Furthermore, viewing the different soil, glass blown faces and the sewing stitched strings, are geometrically creating a face which can be compared to looking inside yourself. A physicalist compels me to explore the portrayed artwork. This fusion is often seen in the fused and blown glass. I share physical, emotional aspects and engage in intimate conversations whereby human emotions are expressed, to help portray everyone’s story.
