Sasol wax in art competition winners announced
Ilse Pahl was awarded top honours in her category (wax as process) in the second Sasol wax in art competition, which explores the unique applications of wax as an art-making medium. Her work, titled Once upon a time is a mixed media installation, with bronzes casts utilising jelly moulds into which wax was poured. The wax figures were then cast in bronze.

Merit prizes were awarded to Jane Cheadle for her animated video piece BLEAT- First Edition, Fritha Langerman for Indigenous, a mixed media installation and Jennifer Ord for her sculptural piece The pirouetting pendu femelle fibrillates.
