Pathways is about choices, dealing with the inevitability of movement and change, transformation and resistance, hope and despair.
The art world is already taking note of these two talented artists. In 2009, Njara was named runner-up in the Pretoria Portland Cement (PPC) competition for Best Sculpture. He has also participated in numerous group art exhibitions.
Pete’s work was selected for the 2012 ABSA L’Atelier Art Competition and the Sasol New Signatures Art Competition in 2011, to name a few.
Speaking about Pathways, Njara says that despair always starts out as hope, and if it doesn’t destroy itself, it returns to hope.
Pete’s work expresses the hope that we bring with us on the pathways we take to explore our sense of belonging.
Both artists’ work comments on movement as the central life force, where pathways of continuity and change and their consequences are forever affecting our lives.
