TAXI-012 SANDILE ZULU, the 12th title in the TAXI Art series, is the first book on the work of Sandile Zulu. Over the last decade, Zulu has developed a working method that relies as much on rhythm and repetition as it does on the unpredictability of the elements – fire, water, found objects – he uses. He is, as Colin Richards notes in his meticulously researched essay, a pyromancer, a collector of natural elements, and a scavenger after industrial debris.

Description

TAXI-012 SANDILE ZULU, the 12th title in the TAXI Art series, is the first book on the work of Sandile Zulu. Over the last decade, Zulu has developed a working method that relies as much on rhythm and repetition as it does on the unpredictability of the elements – fire, water, found objects – he uses. He is, as Colin Richards notes in his meticulously researched essay, a pyromancer, a collector of natural elements, and a scavenger after industrial debris.

Zulu’s wide-ranging interests in science, astronomy, and pan-African philosophy, and his innovative use of fire have resulted in a body of work that stands up to rigorous interpretation but conveys a profound appreciation of patterns and harmony. Important pieces such as Royal Court Art Work and his “Artomic Passages” series, attest to a meditative aesthetic philosophy, a disciplined artistic practice, and a keen awareness of the often-difficult relationship between art and society.

Sandie Zulu has participated in numerous group exhibitions both locally and abroad, and his work is in many private and public South African collections. In July 2005 he will mount his first international solo show in London.

Colin Richards has published widely on South African art and curated several major exhibitions. He lectures in art criticism, studio practice, and art theory at the Wits School of Arts, and is a practicing artist whose work is included in most major South African public collections.
