Origin Art: Through Different Lenses

“Through Different Lenses” is an exhibition that celebrates the myriad ways in which artists interpret, question, and engage with the world around them. This show brings together a diverse collection of works from various artists, each with their own unique medium, style, and thematic focus, inviting viewers to explore the rich tapestry of human experience as seen through the eyes of these creators.

Sarah Ballam’s masterful paintings challenge and reinterpret historical narratives of female subjugation, transforming them into powerful expressions of triumph and redemption. Her work compels us to reconsider the past and its impact on contemporary understandings of resilience and empowerment.                                    

Fathema Bemath’s innovative sculpture, crafted from bark chips, serves as a metaphor for the protective layers we construct around ourselves. Her art speaks to the resilience and vulnerability inherent in the human condition, particularly reflecting on women’s experiences within societal structures.

Andiswa Bhungane’s luxurious mixed media creation embodies the essence of opulence and the human pursuit of excellence. Her work is a tactile and visual celebration that invites us to experience art beyond mere visual observation, engaging all our senses in the appreciation of beauty.

Olaf Bischoff’s abstract paintings transport viewers into a realm shaped by colour and form, inspired by a personal and hallucinogenic perception of landscapes. His work challenges us to find meaning beyond the visible, delving into the abstract landscapes of our own imagination.

Aneesah Girie’s mixed media works ingeniously incorporate head scarves, exploring themes of identity, preservation, and continuity. Her art serves as a bridge between material culture and the complex layers of personal and communal narratives.


Sue Martin’s recent landscapes burst with vibrant pinks and blues. These lively scenes invite viewers into a world where nature vibrates with fantastical colours, showcasing Martin’s evolution towards a more expressive and imaginative depiction of landscapes. Her bold use of colour transforms the familiar into realms of extraordinary vibrancy, offering a fresh perspective on the natural world.                                                      

Colbert Mashile’s fantastical depictions of cultural traditions and traumas through animal and human characters offer a poignant commentary on societal norms and challenges. His rich symbolic language opens a dialogue on identity, tradition, and transformation.                                                    

Catherine Ocholla’s skyscapes confront the pressing global issues of environmental degradation and climate change. Portraying dystopian futures, she urges us to reflect on our relationship with nature and the legacy we leave.    



Ntate Phakela’s digital and fine art narratives celebrate African stories, blending traditional storytelling with contemporary artistic expression. His work pays homage to the rich heritage of African culture, offering a fresh perspective on the continent’s history and its people’s experiences.     



“Through Different Lenses” is an invitation to embark on a journey. Through the diverse media and subject matter, the show encapsulates the complexity of human experience, encouraging viewers to see the world from multiple perspectives. It is a testament to the uniqueness each perspective brings to the world.
