'I am inspired by the archbishop’s life journey and in particular his capacity for forgiveness. This quote stood out for me: “forgiving is not forgetting; it’s actually remembering and not using your right to hit back”. The message I have tried to convey this message in my artwork is. There is no future if we cannot forgive and move on. In my work there are pieces of paper that collect to form a 90 which references the archbishop this year.' –Samukelo Gqola
