The masquerades VI by Thokozani Mthiyane. Mixed media on UF Fabriano . 25 x 31.75 inches. Comes signed by Thokosani Mthiyane and with a Letter of Provenance from 1XRUN.

"My essence, my vessel, and my core ache for the dawn when pretence dissolves, and we embrace the symphony and verse woven into existence. Perhaps then, we'll cherish our existence and prize each breath bestowed upon us. These creations serve as mirrors to that state of being; a reinterpretation of sound through hues and textures.

This series emanates from a realm beyond representation, where spirituality intertwines with cultural vitality, encompassing all human endeavors. From figurative masks to soulful portraits, from the gestures of humanity echoed in music to abstract symbols, they encapsulate the essence of my identity as both an artist and an individual. It's a catharsis, blending pain and joy, echoing human sighs into melodies where the hue turns to a certain shade of blue and other tones; it's a visual ode to the enigmatic depths of the self, sometimes even unknown to me as a painter.

The persistent apparitions of masks and masquerades swirling in my mind reflect not only the outer world but also the tumult within, a testament to the ongoing dialogue between my inner and outer realities." - Thokozani Mthiyane
