The award-winning architectural and design practice Mathews and Associates Architects was established in October 2000. To commemorate two decades of design, Pieter Mathews and his team have selected a diverse range of building types from more than 300 projects completed over the past twenty years.

Says Pieter Mathews, principal architect at Mathews and Associates Architects: “This publication gives me and my team an opportunity to look back, but it also allows us to look to the future with a clear vision and a spirit of innovation. It is our vision to expose the general public to architecture and to facilitate an understanding of, and appreciation for, design by enabling them to experience buildings first-hand. The selected projects from the past two decades anchor this publication, but a glimpse of the near future has also been included. 2020 will be remembered in history as the year in which the world came to a stop, changing our ways and our professions forever, but no matter how the world changes, architects will always have a role to play in society in one way or another. After all these years, my credo that a brick in a poetically designed building costs exactly the same as a brick in a mundane building, stands firm.”

In 2018 Pieter Mathews was honoured by the Afrikaans Academy for the Arts and Sciences (die Suid-Afrikaanse Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns) with the Medal of Honour Visual Art (Architecture).

A gentle and philosophical look at the events of 2020, and how we can deal with the challenges that life throws us in general. A book to share with the friends and family that we have been missing.

A beautiful book to connect us after such a challenging time.

'Dark clouds were looming in the distance. We watched them gather, and we wondered... When will it come? How long will it last?'

A monumental storm brings huge and sudden change. We follow a man and his dog through the uncertainty that it brings to their lives. Through their eyes, we see the difficulties of being apart, the rollercoaster of emotions that we can all relate to, and the realisation that by pulling together we can move through difficult times with new perspective, hope and an appreciation of what matters most in life.

About the Author

'Jean Doyle's work is renowned all over the world and her veneration of the fuller female figure has become a trademark of her work as well as a tool for social commentary' - Zanele Mbeki

Jean Doyle, A Portrait is a glorious tribute to one of South Africa's quietest artists. This part-biography, part critique explores how Jean has formed, shaped, forged and polished her career. Frequently told through her private sculpture notes, it goes beneath the layers of bronze and clay to the inspirational heart of her work, tracing her artistic journey. It celebrates the freshness, simplicity, intelligence, unmistakable sense of humour and, strikingly, the modest humility with which Jean Doyle has emerged as one of the greatest story-telling South African artists of our time.

The first-ever anthology of Jean Doyle's life and work, this is a rich and vivid exploration of this eminent South African artist's achievements. It is deeply personal and reveals never-before-seen sculpture notes. This book is a visual feast of Doyle's works, including useful thumbnail references in a practical, chronological appendix.

Hierdie publikasie gee 'n volledige beeld van die kunstenaar Frans David Oerder (1867-1944) se oeuvre - sy Anglo-Boereoorlogtekeninge, landskappe, genrestukke, portrette, blomstudies en stillewes, interieurs, dierestudies en grafiese werk. Geen moeite is ontsien om hierdie boek so volledig en betroubaar moontlik te maak nie. Argivale bronne in die Kunsargief van die Universiteit van Pretoria, die Argief van die Johannesburg Kunsmuseum en die Nasionale Argief van Suid-Afrika in Pretoria het grootliks bygedra tot die toevoeging van inligting oor hierdie kunstenaar wat nie voorheen bekend was nie. Die plakboek van Gerda Oerder en 'n lang lesing met detailinligting oor Oerder se vroeë lewe deur mev. Lorimer in die Kunsargief van die Universiteit van Pretoria het bygedra tot 'n nuwe vertolking van die lewe en werk van hierdie belangrike Suid-Afrikaanse kunstenaar.
Tydens die Anglo-Boereoorlog was Oerder die enigste amptelike kunstenaar aan Boerekant, maar tot dusver is nog geen volledige geskiedenis van sy deelname aan dié oorlog geskryf nie. In hierdie boek word Oerder se Anglo-Boereoorlogtekeninge nou vir die eerste keer so volledig moontlik afgedruk en beskryf.

OOR DIE OUTEUR
Prof. Alex Duffey was dosent in Kunsgeskiedenis, Museumkunde en Kunsopvoeding aan die Universiteit van Pretoria, later ook hoof van die Departement Kunsgeskiedenis. Vanaf 2004 tot en met sy aftrede in 2012 was hy Hoofkurator van die Universiteit van Pretoria se Kuns- en Erfenisversamelings. Hy is nasionaal en internasionaal bekend as een van die voorste kenners van die kunstenaars Anton van Wouw, Frans Oerder en Jacob Hendrik Pierneef, asook van Chinese keramiek en antieke handel met Suider-Afrika.

The book is aimed at art and mosaic lovers and mosaic crafters.

A full colour, coffee table art book containing over 400 photographs of magnificent, inspirational mosaics.

192 pages
210 x 250 mm landscape
hardcover
Outline
Mosaic is the art of creating beautiful patterns, images and motifs with the help of colourful tiles, glass pieces and stones to create decorative works for interior and exterior living spaces.

While the popularity of this centuries-old art form has waxed and waned over time, it has proved eternal and, with time, has become ever more polished and beautiful. Mosaics Made in Africa is a 192 page, 210x250mm, hardcover, full colour, coffee table book containing over 400 photograph.

It is a tribute to the exceptional mosaic work of Vera Valli Giovitto, and her beloved Mosaic Arts. These pages recount her journey from humble beginnings and a lifetime dedicated to the art of mosaic craftsmanship in South Africa, showcasing highlights of her life's work.

The book pays tribute to the dedicated team of artisans and designers at Mosaic Arts whose collaborative skills are an indispensable part of the works presented. With each new mosaic commission, their collection has grown to embody a diverse cross-section of styles reflecting the unique backdrop of the people and places they were made for. Although many of the mosaics are not accessible to the public, together they form a body of work that is truly inspiring and deserving of a broader platform of appreciation.

Marina Giovitto Ehlers, the author, is the Director of Mosaic Arts, a mother of three and a qualified Architect. She has worked with her mother for 20 years, from whom she learned the practice, art and love for mosaic. In 2011 she won the CEO Magazine award for the Most Influential Business Woman in Art & Culture.

Johannesburg: Egoli to some, Jozi to others. Once a mining town, now the most important commercial city in Africa. It's been home to renegades and rogues, colonialists and capitalists, the dispossessed and the newly enriched. Today it's populated by those who call themselves Africans or Afrikaners, by blacks, whites and every shade inbetween, and by immigrants from all over.

There are suburbs where the daily rituals of Jewish culture rival New York's; elsewhere, the tone is more Lagos than laid-back. Remnants of the colonial era stand alongside contemporary steel and glass. In a town that prides itself on the pursuit of fortune, it's a challenge to preserve heritage, and it is against this background that Hidden Johannesburg offers a snapshot of 28 notable buildings.

From the stately mansions of the Randlords to their downtown headquarters, the clubs where they socialised and the churches where they worshipped, the architecture of early Johannesburg lives on in sandstone, granite, marble and slate. But this is a city that constantly reinvents itself, and where the old is all-too-readily demolished to make way for the next 'big thing'. Some buildings will survive, others will be consigned to memory.

Hidden Johannesburg reveals fragments of the history of this vibrant city but, perhaps, the book also tells us something about our future, for if we allow our heritage to be swept away in the name of progress, are we advancing at all?

Giraffe stretch out their necks and bat-eared foxes curl their tails to make handles for jugs, vases and tureens. Inquisitive monkeys peer over the edge of a planter, teasing the leopards below them. Magical creatures wear cloaks of flowers, spots and stripes. A turbaned Zulu figure sits astride a hippo ...

Colourful, imaginative, vibrant, delicate and dramatic - these are just some of the hallmarks of the artworks that have garnered international accolades for Ardmore Ceramic Art in rural KwaZulu-Natal. It is here, in South Africa's most successful ceramics studio set in the verdant Midlands, that exquisitely handcrafted and highly detailed figurative works and functional ware are created by more than fifty artists who draw on Zulu traditions and folklore, history, the natural world, and their own lives for inspiration.
