Notes

Albert Dasheka was born in the Tweespruit/Thaba-Nchu area near Bloemfontein. He showed exceptional art talent from an early age. His only art training was from the Belgium painter-priest Frans Claerhout, who called Dasheka a hugely talented woodcarver. Dasheka spent a few years as a miner in the Witwatersrand gold mines, and his intimate knowledge of mining and the mineworker reflects in this work. In conversation with the present owner, Dasheka vividly described his personal sense of claustrophobia and captivity as a mineworker.
