TONY GUM, Milked in Africa – Half full, half empty, 2016.

thanks so much for your enthusiastic response to my first Imaginary Curator post! today’s “show” is all about THE NUDE. i want to save these bums as my desktop background in case someone is ever spying on me working at some cafe. i can just imagine them squinting, trying to make out what exactly the image is… and then the realisation suddenly dawning.

i’m kicking off with South African artist Tony Gum (above), who kind of exploded onto the local art scene last year (and was subsequently featured on Vogue.com). i saw her latest prints at the Cape Town Art Fair last month, and they are as gorgeous in person as they are on screen. keep an eye on this girl.

  1. Dear Miss Moss,
    I produce profiles for CNN’s African Voices, from Cape Town.
    I have been asked to follow up on correspondence suggesting you as a potential profile. I am unsure how far you are in your pregnancy and whether this will be a problem or not at this stage – so I am checking in and seeing if you want to take the conversation further!
    Kind regards
    Marion Edmunds
