Pots and pans, stacked ever so high, dishes forever. Shall I laugh? Or sit down and cry?
Winlaw-based artist Rabi’a was born in Holland, and emigrated to Canada at fifteen with her family of ten. She came to her calling as an artist and sculptor via many bends in the road, and not until she was in her 60s. Artistically self-taught, she learned to weld a number of years ago and continues to create in her current passion – metal, often adorned with colourful paint, mosaic tile, and hidden objects to delight the viewer.
Despair confronts the viewer with a familiar sight: pots and pans stacked ever-so high - dishes forever.
Shall we laugh? Or sit down and cry?
