Over the last decade, Sandile Zule has developed a working method that relies as much on rhythm and repetition as it does on the unpredictability of the elements, fire, water, found objects – he uses. He is a pyromancer, a collector of natural elements, and a scavenger after industrial debris.
Sandile Zulu’s wide-ranging interests in science, astronomy, and pan-African philosophy, and his innovative use of fire have resulted in a body of work that stands up to rigorous interpretation but conveys a profound appreciation of patterns and harmony.
Sandile Zule has participated in numerous group exhibitions both locally and abroad, and his work is in many private and public South African collections. In July 2005, he mounted his first international solo show in London.
