Intraparadox, An interview with Bruce Bowale


In this addition of Intraparadox, I have a conversation with Bruce Bowale in the backdrop of his pop-up exhibition at Stuart Trent Art Gallery, Waterkloof – Tshwane, during this month. Bowale has produced around twenty artworks for this exhibition. While half of the artworks were produced during lockdown whilst he was in Limpopo, Zebediela. The other works were produced in Gauteng from when our country moved to COVID-19 Level 3 restrictions.
