Petronilla Silver’s Gallery 6 November – 3 December 2019
A recent group of Sokari’s distinctive metal figures: dancing, fighting, walking, living, all commenting on our dependence on oil and our relationship with the natural world. They are distinctly African, set in a world of recycled oil barrels, tin cans, colourful toy cars and pom pom-like  agapanthus. In spite of the apparent playfulness of some of Sokari’s pieces they carry a serious and hard-hitting message, tempered by her trust in human kind.
