Talitha Deetlefs’ collection of sculptures is an intimate representation of the act of self-actualization and the transformative qualities thereof. Concentrating on the female form, Deetlefs’ collection of work embodies the complexities of the female identity and how it relates to modern society. Her attention to detail and interesting choice of medium ensures that each piece is unique unto itself, creating a collection which is conceptually uniform yet aesthetically diverse.Deetlefs urges us to celebrate the sensuality of the female form.Viewed from the angle of her own life experience, her aim is to search and explore all facets of the feminine archetype, and to provide a window into the feminine psyche.
