In this extraordinary work, Kanyemba pays tribute to the beauty and indomitable spirit of the African woman, the spiritual cornerstone of the sacred family unit. This work depicts the “good woman” or Manhu Chaiye who is peacefully embraced by the ancestral spirits.
Denny Kanyemba began sculpting in 1987 and was influenced by such artists as Nesbert Mukomberanwa and Moses Masaya. He enjoys carving abstract figures in current events and, occasionally, large pieces representing art in action. He says the ideas for his work come from everyday life in high-density suburbs.
His works have been exhibited in Berkshire and Eton, United Kingdom, at Chiefs and Spirits Gallery in Den Haag, Holland, and in galleries in France, Belgium, Portugal, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Australia and extensively in the United States. In Zimbabwe he was also involved in the Tabex Exhibit 1992, where two of his sculptures have become part of the permanent collection. He also has sculptures at Leopard Rock Hotel.
