Writing Art History Since 2002

3D collage artist artist Marlise Keith


ART AFRICA met up with South Africa artist, Marlise Keith at WORLDART on Church Street in Cape Town to discuss her latest solo exhibition, ‘Difficult Things.’

Beneath the pastel hues of Keith‘s work lies a darker, more complex narrative, influenced by the daily troubles of ordinary people, newspaper headlines and the artist’s personal experiences.

Working predominantly in acrylic ink, gesso, pencils, pen and collage and including sculptural work that she refers to as “3D collage;” Keith produces artworks that are beautifully surreal and layered with the ability to disturb as much as they intrigue.
