A mixed media/fiber piece, in tree parts on cradle board. Cape Town ! is the Victorian white area of Cape Town, Cape Town II is the Muslim area, Cape Town III is the slums of Cape Town. Each can be bought seperately for $175.
I visited the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa. The city is incredibly beautiful in many spots, but like many cities, it is a place of haves and have-nots. I originally titled this trilogy, “Separate Not Equal”.
In the wealthy, white area of town there were beautiful homes, but they were often protected by numerous layers of fencing.
In the Muslim area of town this group of citizens created their own enclave of small, but colorful homes. On the edge of the city, usually not seen by tourists are the slums. People create electricity by running wires that are connected illegally, homes are made of discarded trash. Everyone living here is black skinned.
My hope is that Cape Town can evolve into a place where all faiths, people of color and cultures live together in harmony and have equal opportunities.
