Artist's Statement

The word "square" can mean "honourable, equality, justice and balance".

10 years of freedom and democracy are currently being celebrated in South Africa since the inauguration of Nelson Mandela as President in 1994. He has played an honourable role in bringing justice, balance and equality to our land. Images of his face make up the number 10.

The South African flags are symbols of our rainbow democracy.

The square work itself encompasses a number of other squares.
