Turiya Magadlela focuses on abstraction and challenges the borders between categories. Her geometrical compositions of often folded or re-stitched pieces of cloth or cut-up pantyhose sculpt the surface of the canvas. The subtle plays of the colours and the transparency of warped and stretched materials evoke the nuances of gestural painting.
