Since 1994, I use african soil in my paintings.

"Ambuya I" is the first painting of the series "Homelands"  and also the first, I use the human figure again.

I took the photograph of this fieldworker along a highway near Cape Town on ther way home to a township or homeland.

I took her silhoutette and tried to create a surounding that deserves to be called home using spoil from fertile areas.
