Sculptures shed light on abuse

PATERNOSTER – A well-known local artist, Dianne Heesom-Green, recently sculpted heads with beaten up faces sporting a painful looking blue eye.

The noses and mouths of the sculptures are covered with face masks to serve as a “social commentary on lockdown domestic violence,” she explained.

Heesom-Green, who works from her art studio in Paternoster, named the Stone Fish Studio, is known for teaching, exploring and exhibiting generally in the ceramic medium or in oils.

Her work is found in homes and collections across Europe and South Africa.

Since the national lockdown was enforced on 27 March to curb the spread of the Covid 19 virus, several news platforms and publications have reported that domestic violence has skyrocketed.

According to local police spokesperson, Captain Tania Helfrich, the West Coast, which includes Paternoster, is certainly no exception.
