Artist Statement

Hazel Mphande

Hazel’s work focuses on the portrayal of one’s body, identity and the abstract representation of nature. Her work is characterised by the use of long shutter speed and double exposure, using blur to create a sense of movement and transition. These photographs embody a temporal wane of fleeting experiences, memory, growth and decay and begins to mimic the shape shifting apparitions of recollection and reminiscence of transition.
