Jahrsgabe Edition 2020

Richie Madyira

Richie grew up in Zimbabwe, where he completed his Diploma in Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe in 2007. Today he lives and works in Philippi, a township community in Cape Town.

In his recollection of childhood, Richie remembers how conflicts would arise in his family due to religious disputes against traditional rituals. This has affected his perception of faith and religion and is often emphasised in his artworks. The colour selections in Richie’s works don’t fully represent the real world, but are surprising and often juxtaposed in order to form an ironic harmony. These ‚undecided‘ colours are often used to depict the internal conflict one encounters when practicing religion without self-evaluation and purpose.

Besides Richie’s critique on religious dogmas, he also symphathises with fellow immigrants who find new homes in foreign places where they are often alienated and discouraged.

In Richie’s JAHRESGABE-Edition he presents people ‚behind the scenes‘, who work as cleaning or service staff, as cook or baker to provide the prosperous live of others. Through unusual colour combinations and his smooth style Richie creates calm and serene atmospheres.

Richie created 30 originals: Oil on canvas frames of 20 × 20 × 3,5 cm.
