Guy du Toit

Guy du Toit’s apparent irreverence can obfuscate

the fact that he is undoubtedly one of South Africa’s most accomplished sculptors.

“Liberated” (as he says) by the advent of democracy in South Africa from having to concern himself and his art with the notions of identity, he has happily turned his attention to “less provincial” pursuits like reveling in form, concept and media for their own sakes.

Du Toit uses the unexpected juxtaposition of bronze casts of universal, everyday found (and made-to-look-found) objects to invite his audience to invent dialogue themselves.
