Presence of Self at the Table of Us 1

Tshabalala’s work embodies thematic expressions of one’s identity, juxtaposed with that of society’s often invisible expectations and narratives imposed on oneself. Seen here is a series of oil-based paper lithography variable editions. The prints consist of multiple layers with chine collé, collage, monotype, linocut, embossing, hand colouring and drawing, and of course paper lithography.  In the works Tshabalala is both the subject and the artist, making each image not only a self-reflection but also commentary on the varying scales at which society deems fit to categorize the human body.
