This painting is an expression of the entire Intle Art community. Each piece has been worked on by a different contributor and the intention is to represent the Hangberg and Imizamo Yethu art communities collaborating to a growing movement similar to the growth of the protea depicted.
The artists involved didn’t sign their names because they didn’t want to individually take credit for the work of the whole and rather participate in creating something together. The jacket is a thick goat hide and was chosen for this piece because it was seen by the group as a blank canvas rather with its simplistic design rather then anything that needed a lot of busy imagery going on.
