Marolize Southwood is an artist based in Cape Town. She completed her BAFA at the Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2017. She was born in Potchefstroom and grew up in Viljoenskroon, a small town in the Free State. At Michaelis, Marolize majored in photography but has since expanded her practice to include painting. Southwood’s work stems from a fascination with the constructed reality we humans have created for ourselves. The artist explores this notion through the use of spaces and objects. In her work, new realities and narratives are created through unusual pairings of the two.
