Loyiso Mkize: Signal 2 Soul

“This body of work is a deconstructive journey inward.  Here I model light and dark expressively and deliberately as a way to observe the seen and the unseen of the human form. Who we are as well as who we appear to be. Taking on the shadow plane, I explore the “darkness” using colour. The shadow plane is drenched in a colour field, an entire colour landscape where I search for my connection with whom Im depicting. What stories hide behind our everyday facade (the side of us caught in the light)? And how do we establish identity with these two fields of existence?  Behind the lit plane description of who we appear to be, is a universe of memories, emotions, ideas, experiences, loves, hates, prejudices, interests , opinions, beliefs etc. This devise itself is positively charged with intensity and vibrancy which I believe in a way illuminates our inner truths and possibly serves as an agent encouraging us to relate to one another more effectively. To be inquisitive enough not to perceive one another at face value, but to brave the mysteries of the unseen and in so doing acquire signal to the soul.” – Loyiso Mkize
