Founded in 2007 by Dewald Prinsloo, Leonard de Villiers and Marc Stanes, our three gallery spaces in Franschhoek and Cape Town showcase classic and contemporary fine art combined with exclusive, local design. Ebony collaborates with some of the finest creators in Africa to create dynamic and engaging spaces.
Mafafo is a multidisciplinary artist whose practise ranges from embroidery and oil painting to installation. Born in the semi-arid Northern Cape, Mafafo’s verdant imaginings, characterised by lush greenery and sensuous drapery, are far removed from the dusty mining town where she grew up.
Inspired by stories of women around her, Mafafo likens the woman in her narratives to flowers
slowly blossoming against all odds, subtly criticising traditional gender roles while at the same time encouraging women to realise their own strength.
In pursuit of her commitment to include the public in her creative expression and self-reflection, Mafafo will be performing live on Thursday, 3rd October 2019 at 6:30 pm.
Join Ebony to see her creative process and enjoy her interaction with the audience.
