INKTOBER 2019

Every year the Inktober movement allows artists to spend a whole month creating one artwork per day. There is a list of prompts but Fiver Locker prefers to focus on a theme for the month: maps, people, Johannesburg stories... 

This year Fiver's emphasis has been on working with different techniques. she used print making, collage, gold leafing, drawing and stamping to let the process guide me to a pleasing image. Her materials stem from my life here in Joburg, mixed with objects picked up during her mid-year travels to the Netherlands, Germany, the UK and France. The resulting images represent my unconscious processing of her life between cultures and countries.

SUPERWOMEN

Fiver's project "Super Women" sees a recombination of previous subjects. Locker utilises all manner of print processes, from stamps to lino cuts, from letterpress to mono-prints to create a powerful series of portraits of ordinary women inhabiting the characters of super hereos. Focussing on the women of Johannesburg in particular, the use of gold and red references the source of Johannesburg's power and the blood that is a source of women's personal power. Sketching in the street to gather faces enables her to bring an immediacy to the collaged prints, grounding them in reality.
