In Conversation with Duncan Wylie

In conversation is a series of insightful conversations with artists featured in Zeitz MOCAA’s exhibitions. Join us for a conversation with Zimbabwean artist, Duncan Wylie whose paintings are part of the exhibition, Five Bhobh: Painting at the End of an Era.

Using gestural mark-making, colour, and composition, Wylie creates multi-layered paintings that convey a sense of chaos, urgency, and resilience. Represented through an exploding matrix, the thin, transparent layers of oil paint in Wylie’s work echo his fragile perception of ‘belonging’ — a consequence of having been subjected to the trauma and violence of losing one’s home. Wylie was born in Harare, Zimbabwe, in 1975, and currently lives and works in London.
