Lucienne Bestall

(b 1992South Africa. Lives and works in Cape Town)

Distrustful of ‘artspeak’, Bestall favours clarity over jargon, lyricism over intellectualism, and feeling over theory. She is drawn to those places in art and life that stand at the limits of the expressible; places where experience eludes simple description and turns instead to metaphor, gesture, and image.
