A piece on the stories of womanhood penned in this exhibition

It is because of women that every living person’s soles have felt the soil of the Earth’s ground. Therefore, the voices that narrate the stories of womanhood in artworks are important. We cannot ignore the importance of women. In other words, we cannot tell our stories without telling the stories of women since our stories begin with them. This news piece focuses on the stories of womanhood narrated in the artworks currently on exhibition at Art Curator. Everything penned by us below is our opinion.

Two women embracing
Oil on canvas
Size 44cm x 32cm

The title of this work in the context of our society narrates the story of women embracing each other in a world that strives to divide them. It emits historical moments where women stood together. Women in our society have been each other’s refuge. In addition, we see this in our friendships with one another where we eventually become sisters to each other.

The stories we share with each other

Conversations are the foundations of many women’s stories. Whether we sit with our grandmothers over tea or talk to our older sisters in our bedrooms, what is gifted to us in conversation is the voice that is heard when we tell our stories.

Of who we are
Frans Claerhout Mothers and Children Oil on Canvas Size 92cm x 76cm

The stories of women who are mothers are narratives of sleepless nights feeding and days spent being selfless. In our country, South Africa, most people grow up in households headed by mothers. Out of all the works exhibited currently at Art Curator, this is the work that tells the stories of many South African mothers and children.

Portraits are reflections of everything that cannot be written or voiced. Here, we are gifted the story of a woman whose narrative rests in her eyes.
