Artist Description

Need to know: the slight waving of the paper surface of this artwork is part of the creation process.

Cultural objects are important symbolic containers for social interactions. In the case of Van Heerden's in particular, these cultural objects take the form of monumental statues erected as memorials to heroes of a troubled past. Equestrian imagery in these statues is most often associated with military leaders and statesman and can be traced as far back (in the West) as Archaic Greece. The select representation and commemoration of certain events relating to political narrative and the past of a community are powerful catalysts in the generation of identity and culture.
