My own artistic practice as a sculptor began when I was a youth in Zimbabwe. The country’s economy was in decline, and sculpting offered an opportunity to create income while expressing the difficulties of our postcolonial social environment. My artistic practice has helped me to maintain a dialogic relationship to home through Zimbabwean stone, which I continue to work with here in Canada. Guided by the stone's natural formation, I must work in cooperation with the stone, and am endlessly interested in the way this negotiation for power and control contributes to the final product.
