This educational supplement is published together with TAXI-015 Paul Stopforth. Paul Stopforth produced several bodies of work that were startling in their courageous engagement with the repressive society in which he lived. The importance of Stopforth’s work is that he is an acute observer of the minutiae of everyday life and keenly attuned to the significance of ordinary objects, which he imbues with dignity and careful metaphorical significance.
Stopforth has exhibited his work since 1971 in galleries and museums around the world. He has served as curator for a number of different institutions and competitions. His work is held in many public and private collections in South Africa and abroad.
