Wacky Wednesday: Erotic African Art, A Feast For The Senses, and Sensibilities
In this instalment of Wacky Wednesday, we flip and bring you Wondrous Wednesday and present South African artist, Lady Skollie. Based out of Johannesburg she creates erotic art that’s a visual feast for the eyes, and well, other parts of the body. Her work is bold, and brash, full of colour and life, a feast for all senses!
Born in 1987 in Cape Town with the birth name, Laura Windvogel, her pseudonym tells the real story of a woman in control of her own. For those that know Afrikaans, Skollie describes a person of colour as a suspicious character, used by the police of the area, so it seems fitting that at she would use it in her own name.
In a recent article for The Huffington Post by Priscilla Frank , she tells of the history of her people, the “Khoisan Tribe, a group that 22,000 years ago was the largest on the planet but now numbers approximately 100,000”. Its a humbling short read that gives great descriptive on her work and choice mediums in which to produce her elaborate work. Work that is without a doubt thought provoking.
Her work is currently on display at the Tyburn Gallery London.
A feast, well worth it.
