Untitled XVI

by Nompumelelo Ngoma

Nompumelelo Ngoma is motivated by issues of femininity, identity and gender and questions the notion of domesticity and vulnerability in the context of African tradition. As she states, she wants her viewers to “ponder upon these accepted norms and to also reflect on who we are as a nation and how history has formed who we’ve become.” Smithsonian National Museum of African Art

Nompumelelo Ngoma - (b.1984) Soweto, Johannesburg. Currently based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Nompumelelo’s work gives voice to women’s issues through the alluring medium of oil painting and watercolour. Her exploration of women’s identities within the context of certain traditional African cultures is a recurring theme in her body of work.

Through the use of everyday symbols of African femininity, blankets, dresses, and headscarves, she creates a way to see what is familiar in a new way. Her delicate, fluid watercolour and her strong oil painting are used to lift the veil on society’s limiting beliefs about what it means to be a woman.
