What does it mean for an artist to pay homage to another, freely borrowing from that artist, with full acknowledgement? When is the tribute about the declared object of interest, and when does it depart from this focus, telling us more about the supplicant or something else? And what is the significance of such a dialogue between muse and mediator for us as the audience? These are some of the questions that I grappled with in viewing recent works by Thami Jali at the KZNSA Gallery.
