About this Item
At a young age Sibiya met Bill Ainslie, who in turn introduced him to Cecil Skotnes. Skotnes accepted Sibiya as a private pupil, and it was Skotnes who introduced him to the incised and painted wood panel as medium1. EJ de Jager writes: “In these panels Sibiya has technically mastered his medium very successfully. The panels are cut in shallow relief and embellished with paint, and are presented as finished objects themselves.”2
