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.

AGE OF WISDOM
by LIZAMORE & ASSOCIATES
With his 11th solo exhibition, Chepape Makgato celebrates and honours four women across different generations. Two of them would have celebrated their centenaries this year:
Raesetja Maropeng Makgato 1920 - 2019 and Rebecca Nnana Mochedibane Mphahlele 1920 - 2004.
Maropeng is Makgato's grandmother who raised him to become the man he is today; and Rebecca is the wife of his idol and now ancestor, Professor Es’kia Mphahlele.
Napo Masheane and Ava DuVernay disrupted the arts and cultural sectors globally: Masheane is a poet, author and all round theatre practitioner who become the first black woman to script a play, direct and perform it at the Johannesburg Market Theatre. DuVernay is an American filmmaker, winning the prestigious Best Director Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival for her second feature film Middle of Nowhere, becoming the first black woman to win the award.
Makgato is paying tribute to their collective lives.
This exhibition seeks to celebrate the contribution by these great women, among the myriad of women who were never acknowledged for their achievements.
