About this Item

South African 1996 -
acrylic on Youpa paper primed with acrylic gel
100 by 70cm


Yolanda Mazwana is a self-taught visual artist based in Johannesburg, currently specializing in painting. Her work is centred around mental illness, popular culture, phobias, relationships and storytelling and her style being described as an amalgamation of abstract expressionism, neo-expressionism and symbolism. She currently lives and works in Johannesburg.
Mazwana’s recent solo exhibition Symptoms of Nothing at Kalashnikovv Gallery (2019) explored experiences, scenarios, thoughts, panic attacks and environments that were re-imagined into characters that represent the questions of a possible hypochondriac. Following her previous solo exhibition Secret Homegirls at Daville Baillie Gallery (2019), Mazwana delved further into the observation of the agoraphobic secret home girls. As a body of work Symptoms of Nothing is a combination of textures and colours that define the intensity expressed of a hypochondriac. These compositions determine what it means to not know what you are going through or why you are going through it.


This lot is featured as one of the finalists for the Emerging Painting Invitational Prize (EPI). This is an international art platform developed by the Emerging African Art Galleries Association (EAAGA) to support and recognise the excellence of emerging painters living and working on the continent.
