‘Ukuxova’ is based around the idea of home cooked bread - the process of baking bread, from mixing dough then making sure all ingredients are well mixed until you have a perfectly baked bread. The theme of this artwork illustrates a story of a heavily disadvantaged family, living in a dry and dusty village located on the outskirts of Pretoria. A young woman brings a healthy child to life; her husband is retrenched and loses his job and then decide to abandon his family because he does not want anything to do with the child or the idea of being a father. The mother finds herself forced to wear the pants and become the sole breadwinner in their home.
