"Tribute to Lucky Sibiya"
1999-10-07 until 1999-11-05
Unisa Art Gallery
ZA South Africa
Unisa Art Gallery will be hosting an important exhibition of the artworks
of the late Lucky Sibiya (1942-1999). For schools and educational
institutions this exhibition serves as a valuable resource as he was an
important South African artist who features in the Matric syllabus. Due
to the generosity of the Everard Read Gallery, Unisa is very privileged to
be able to pay tribute to one of the regions most recognised artists.
Lucky Sibiya is internationally renowned for his abstract paintings and
sculptural carvings. Sibiya's works have been exhibited, and collected
locally and globally. His richly carved flowing rhythmic lines and painted
wood panels are perhaps what he is best known for, yet he also
experimented freely with mixed media and found objects. He mastered
the art of reinventing the discarded by incorporating for example,
scraps of broken piano, pieces of leather, wood, material and metal
into his work. Lucky Sibiya made an enormous and lasting contribution to
South African art.
Numerous artists are inspired by his work. Lucky also supported other
artists by collecting their work and involving himself in informal teaching
and sharing his creative inspiration and expertise with young artists.
