Rather than focusing on popular visual culture, as much artwork does today, Fourie’s artistic practice confronts the mundane. Though his work, which acts as a type of visual poetry, could be seen as mundane, visions and experiences of everyday life transcend into another space, a space in which everyday notions become beautiful, intriguing sights.

Anna van der Ploeg is an interdisciplinary artist from South Africa, working primarily in paint, print, and wood. She is compelled by representational imagery for the qualities it shares with literature: an ability to be didactic, or to create a fiction in which to probe at the truth. Van der Ploeg has a sharp interest in language, as intimated in her titles, and writing often runs parallel to the making of her works. Titles sometimes precede, or prompt the actual artwork. Her practice is built on a foundation of intellectual curiosity and technical competence: she is vigorous in both making and thinking. Though the catalyst to her work is conceptual, her process is often labour-intensive and perceptive.
