Earth Songs C by Thokozani Mthiyane. 24 x 34 inches. Comes signed by Thokosani Mthiyane and with a Letter of Provenance from 1XRUN.

"The series titled Earth Songs represents my own personal reflection on living and the ways of becoming. Investigating whether it is possible to be without space; witnessing and experiencing
generations go through life in search of a place called home in the land of their birth. The question of birth versus land and a place called home is stifling it makes it hard to breathe it makes it hard to move.

Earth songs is about the soul and mind notes about the land and the unending for it, the disposition and the catastrophe that comes with. It is also a song (aka nkosisikelel' iAfrika) it is about the language of self-realization and preservation of memory and history, “to see eternity in the grain of sand.” (William Blake). It is about the complex desire to live with natural elements, free from subjugation which comes with being without.

Hence the question on belonging and safety, because without land and space life destabilizes. "Things fall apart and the centre cannot hold." (William Butler Yeats) this work represents my personal assertion inspired by the collective consciousness on why the land matters." - Thokozani Mthiyane
