South African artist Neo Matloga is the winner of the tenth ABN AMRO Art Award in the Netherlands. After relocating to Amsterdam in 2016, he began using ink, charcoal, and photographs to create “collage paintings” that provide a glimpse of an everyday world, a Black family and community surrounded by a sense of security. Matloga’s new works act as extensions of his curiosity around image-making. As he explores an expanding lexicon of figuration, he places emphasis on crafting micro-narratives that are heavily laden with tension. At times unsettling, the figures may act as reminders of the problems that South Africa continues to face. With a text by curator Azu Nwagogu.
