Dale Lawrence

(b 1988South Africa. Lives and works in Cape Town )

Lawrence works as an artist and as part of the creative studio and artist collective Hoick, which he co-founded.

His latest work is a reflection on the Coronavirus pandemic in South Africa.

“The works from this series, a collection of monotypes made during lockdown in South Africa in 2020, aspire to form a sort of time capsule. Art made at a moment in history, when everything presumed known has been thrown into perceived uncertainty, has the potential to provide remarkable insight to future generations into the mind-sets of people at a moment in time. In this instance, at a time when commerce, aspiration, industry pressure, lip service and cynicism have all momentarily vanished, and when the near future is so uncertain that all plans and designs for it have to be abandoned, what endeavours have people found worthy to fill their time?”
