Jack Matji pieces #1

: Jack1

Jack Matji is a Malawian sculptor of expressionistic, surrealistic figurative African work. 

Often whimsical and cheery, sometimes haunting and dark, his work draws on a deep understanding of the emotive language of form and shape, to express the visions of dreams and the unconscious mind.

His work exhibits the technical skill of a master sculptor, yet is strongly influenced by the demands of the market for African crafts. 

His figures range in size from pieces that can be cupped in the hand to creations that stand three feet tall, and friezes with multiple characters complexly interwoven.
