Surreal works woven from painted silicone strings strange silicone works inhabit the space on either side of painting and sculpture. Threadlike spider webs of hair, accented with bands and braids of bright color silicone, are part of Makaza’s broader examination of the fluid and in-flux relationships between the sexes in contemporary Zimbabwe. The twisted strands bound together build powerful metaphors for social and intimate spaces, where traditional roles are no longer assured and liberal attitudes don’t always belong.
