Guy Du Toit was born 1958 in Rustenburg in the North West Province. He uses a wide range of media in his sculptures including bronze, stone, wood and steel. Du Toit is described as ‘irreverent’ (a compliment for any artist!) and in the same breath is undoubtedly one of South Africa’s most accomplished sculptors.
“Liberated” (as he says) by the advent of democracy in South Africa from having to concern himself and his art with the notions of Identity, he has happily turned his attention to “less provincial” pursuits like revelling in form, concept and media for their own sakes. Du Toit uses the unexpected juxtaposition of bronze casts of universal, everyday found (and made-to-look-found) objects to invite his audience to invent dialogue themselves.
