Or 'Reduce insignificance.’ Or 'Guarantee Afterlife.’ The squishy bodily qualities of paint, thick gestures, and sometimes outright messy application, are ideal to evoke a low-tech, talismanic object or fetish and our chaotic and often absurd strategies for controlling the vagaries of chance and guaranteeing a bright future."

His country offers some of the earliest evidence of man, such as the Cradle of Humankind, a Unesco world heritage site near Johannesburg. Here, hunters lived in caves, some of which contain bulbous, tumbling limestone stalactites — natural sculptures directly expressive of primeval forces, wrought through base material."Read More >>
