Clarke (J.) THE PAINTED STONE GARDEN OF NUKAIN MABUZA,
54pp., oblong 4to., b/w & colour illus., paperback, Pretoria, 2013. R280
Farm-worker artist Nukain Mabuza created a ‘garden’ of painted rocks at Revolver Creek, a small rural community between Barberton and Kaapmuiden in the Lowveld of Mpumalanga. Rocks and large boulders on the hillside around his home were painted with brightly coloured geometric patterns and outlines of animals. Since his death in 1981 the garden has been neglected, the paint has faded and peeled and very little of the "Garden of Flowers" (as Mabuza called it) is left.

Pretoria-based artist JFC Clarke took a series of photographs of the site in the 1980s after Mabuza’s death and interviewed the farmer who owned the farm where the rock garden was situated as well as Mabuza's’s co-workers and friends. He is the author of The Home of Nukain Mabuza (2001). The Painted Stone Garden of Nukain Mabuza is based on research done after 2001.

He also attended Neil Sacks’ general art classes offered at the Bantu, Indian and Coloured Arts Group in Durban (BICA) and studied art privately under Julia Norman, David McNab and Nils Solberg.

In 1957 Mvusi received an award from the Ella Lyman Cabot Trust which enabled him to study in Pennsylvania and Boston. In 1961 he started teaching at Clarke College, Atlanta, Georgia. Apartheid legislation passed in South Africa and the Sharpeville shootings made him decide against returning to South Africa. Instead, he and his family moved to Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) where he taught art. From 1962 to 1964 he lectured in the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Science and Technology at Kumasi in Ghana. In 1965 Mvusi was appointed as a senior lecturer in the Fine Arts Department at the University of Nairobi. He died in Kenya in 1967.

Illustrated with oil and watercolour paintings and sepia drawings of Nguni cattle by Leigh Voigt.
