Combining Two Different Forms Of Art
Our New Collaboration with Lizamore & Associates!
During recent photo shoots, we began to notice that some of our clients incorporated works of art into their open plan kitchen living spaces. Often, as designers, we will include images of paintings or sculptures into our display photographs as a way of indicating where cupboards will not be placed. This resulted in us realizing that art has its own particular presence and is essential in allowing you to fully personalize your space and express your own creativity and style. It makes perfect sense that we should be celebrating the fine arts as we continue to uphold the art of kitchen design. A kitchen should be ergonomic and functional, but the beauty of a kitchen
is important too.
In an effort to celebrate these two very different but perfectly complimentary art forms, we have collaborated with the sought after art gallery, Lizamore & Associates, to ensure that the best contemporary art by South African artists find their way into your kitchen. We’ll be featuring Lizamore’s artists on our pages and incorporate their work into our photography, enabling you to experience a perfectly selected artwork in your living space and supporting some of finest local artists.

Lindo Zwane presents mystery, intensity and pure intentions with his latest solo exhibition, ubumnyama. The title of this exhibition refers to a play on darkness, like the colour black or a shadow. This body of work extends a generous invitation to interrogate the deepest corners of our own being. The artist plays with the elements of both two-dimensional and
three-dimensional shapes and forms on his canvas, creating a visual balance between simplicity and complexity. This juxtaposition allows a continuous rethinking and comparison of opposing thoughts that follow in its wake. The artist uses high contrast in his work, reminding us of the never-ending duplicity of human nature – one that is both good and evil. The artist invites us on a journey of introspection as he leads us through the darkness or ubumnyama, using his own portraits as reference material for a symbol of hope and light.
We invite you to enjoy the catalogue of works attached and let us know if you wish to visit our gallery to view this extraordinary body of works. This is Zwane’s second exhibition with Lizamore and we are proud of the offering of this exhibition. The works are powerful and worth a visit.
