Artist Statement:

“South Africa belongs to all who live in it” was the dream for a racially united South Africa. But the burning issue of land ownership has become the ultimate great divide. Because land defines who, what and where we are.
With land we are all monarchs, without it we are serfs. This body of work is an expression of the riddle of land reform and landlessness.

Lisette’s  work is distinguished by her use of found materials as the ‘canvas’ for her paintings, creating context and a dialogue between her background surface and subject matter.
