MWEYA (m-way-a) means “spirit” in the local language of central Zimbabwe, so we present the “Spirit Gallery”. The artists we represent are masters in their respective genres and their creations are deeply spiritual with traditional ties and a message that transcends all human boundaries. With this in mind, we have created a showcase so these two top artists can share their gifts with the world. Je

ff Morris has been curating Zimbabwean Contemporary Sculpture since 1996. He opened his first gallery in 1998, Afridesia, in Red Bank, New Jersey, USA. He has placed pieces in private collections from New York to Los Angeles, the Caribbean to Canada and several countries in Europe. His passion for the unique, his eye for talent, and his core passion for the unique ensures that his featured artists are always striving to push their own boundaries. The art represented exclusively at MWEYA Gallery is the exception, not the rule. Jeff has interacted with these two artists over the last 20+ years which has created a collective understanding of each individual’s perspective on the purpose of their artistic endeavor and the hopes of what message it will deliver now and in the future. The art of MWEYA has been heavily scrutinized regarding material selection, workmanship, finishing and proper care. We look forward to introducing you to the experience of these pieces up close.

Inspiration comes galloping into the mind with an incomplete image and the artist's job is to fill the space with experience, wonder and expertise. "Equine Flight" encapsulates the nature of such ideas that end up as the art works that call our gallery home!

Perception proceeds and follows art. The artist's mind is set ablaze with inspiration of insight and the observer takes in the story, the experience and the meaning behind the art. What does "Perception" show to you?

In Long Branch, NJ sits a piece of the spirit of Zimbabwe. A spirit that permeates through rock and stone and metal, and emerges from the dreams of the sculptor. This piece "The Dreamer" by Robin Kutinyu emanates that unique energy that Mweya is inspired by and cherishes!

"Working in the silence of the desert is like a retreat, where often sculptures start taking shape, getting their first overall expression. Moving stones that weigh several tonnes is a refreshing exercise to me. The tension between raw material and finished piece keeps me excited all along the process of creation." (Robin Kutinyo, artist)

"Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like." (Lao Tzu) The challenge of transition seen in life is replicated in the stone. Just as the stone takes shape during the process, we are created through every intent and interaction. Just as there must a certain trust in the vision with each pass of the artists tool, we must also let go and trust where this life is taking us.
