Ashraf Jamal | Poetry by Karen Press
Lien Botha is a Cape Town-based fine art photographer and installation artist, whose work has been widely exhibited and is to be found in major collections around South Africa. Ashraf Jamal, author of many successful works of fiction and criticism comments: The artist has always preferred enigma as her point of entry. Her photographs, never things in themselves, are shifted, touched, re-contextualized. Traces rather than signs are what interest her… Light and shade rather than bold colour, fickle memory rather than received history, movement rather than stillness. Gently unsettling, her art seeks out the depth in a thing and the shifting surfaces that cloud the perceived object. For this book Lien has collaborated with poet Karen Press and set up a fascinating dialogue between words and imagery.
