Art_For_A_Dream

Anne Jenkins

Artist Statement:

          Spreading hope with every stitch ... and paint .... the Vukuzakhe Project is a collaboration between myself and the Amandawe Support Group, an AIDS orphans support group, in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa - they make the fabric landscapes and I incorporate it in to my art. The series is called "The Vukuzakhe Project" ... it means 'standing up and doing it for yourself' in Zulu. Each of the 7 pieces is on a 36x24 inch wooden panel. I attached plexiglass dowels to support the fabric landscape above the painting to protect the fabric piece, keep it as an individual piece of art and so it 'floats' over the scene. Each completed piece bears my signature and the designer of the fabric landscape. It is a true collaboration and inspiring to both artists! When sold, a percentage of the profits will go to be divided between the creator of the fabric landscape and the group.
