From HOLAAFrica – Nompumelelo’s current research focused on women who are killed and their bodies merely lie ‘Decomposed Bitterly’ (a reference to the concept of Human Traffic).

She says:  ‘I use my body as subject matter. In the images shown I dig my own grave, and die for all women that are killed. This is an ongoing series. Hope my work conveys the bitterness within sharp tools men use to kill, hurt, destroy and rip souls!’

This Exhibition is about women and their art and embracing womanhood in art.

This is done by documenting the art movements of today’s contemporary modern styles and techniques whilst also focusing on a lesbian artist. This exhibition speaks to contemporary academic history of women artists in South Africa, and promotes a learning curve which hopefully leads to new female master artists, and new value and admiration for art by women…..
