Tamasa Gallery is proud to present Interweave, an exhibition by Durban’s celebrated artist Hendrik Stroebel.

Hendrik Stroebel explains: My admiration and exploration of the architectural structures of antiquity in the Near East and Central Asia, and the adornment of later Islamic mausoleums and mosques, led me on a quest to visit and explore these sites over the years. This provided a rich set of references; in a sense it became my own "fertile crescent."

“The embroideries represent a 'restitching' of my cultural encounters and is based on personal photographic documentation, observation and memorabilia. The ceramic frames and stars are a further reflection of Islamic decorative adornment. The eight-pointed ceramic stars are typical of Islamic symbolism and decoration.”

The exhibition will run from February 22 until March 25, 2022.

Tamasa Gallery is situated at 740 Currie Road in Durban. For more information contact 031 207 1223 or visit
