Notes

Cameron Platter’s ‘series of homemade drawings – each meticulously hand-worked and coloured in pencil crayon, are tapestries of a contemporary South African experience; they are simple stories drawn and appropriated from the media, TV, films, art history, pornography, battle scenes, politics, music, signs, imagination, adverts, and religion.’1

Platter’s work is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York.
