Biography Leonard Tshela Mohapi Matsoso
Matsoso, born in Pimville (1949) is a South African artist with an enigmatic presence. He is a painter and graphic artist known best for his monochromatic paintings of the early 1970’s. Matsoso has exhibited across South Africa, Brazil, Greece, Australia and most notably at the Sao Paulo Biennale in 1973 and 1979. Portrait of a Woman (dated 1988) forms part of his later work and is imbued with various colours. By combining different archetypal elements Matsoso creates lines and form that overlap to create a hybrid image of a woman. The work is almost architectural, with traditional dress draping over the woman to create an abstract incarnation of the human form. - Jamie Lee Money
