Tyburn Gallery is pleased to present If You Keep Going South You’ll Meet Yourself, Kudzanai-Violet Hwami’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. Born in Gutu, Zimbabwe in 1993, and currently based in the UK, Hwami has developed her own distinctive style of painting which interweaves figures, symbolic elements, and flattened fields of intense colour to create arresting, dream-like tableaux on a large scale.

For this exhibition, Hwami has drawn inspiration from her collection of family photographs, using experimental techniques to paint figures and scenes evoking the nostalgia and longing of the diaspora experience. The works are a meditation on the idea of home and multiple homes; their stories tend to blur into autobiography - existing between portrait and self-portrait.
