Cinga Samson “Nzulu yemfihlakalo” @ White Cube Mason’s Yard, London

Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

White Cube Mason’s Yard is pleased to present a new group of oil paintings by South African artist Cinga Samson. The exhibition title, ‘Nzulu yemfihlakalo’, is borrowed from an isiXhosa phrase which loosely translates to ‘the depth of mystery’, and is used to express devotion while also serving as a description of God. The complex nature of this phrase informs each one of the works in Samson’s exhibition. Hyperreal, and possessing a hallucinatory quality, in these paintings Samson provokes an encounter with the unknown and gives form to the intangible metaphysical realms that impact our mortal existence.
