Wilma Cruise is a South African sculptor and visual artist. She works mainly with fired clay in her renderings of life-sized human and animal figures which are often translated into bronze editions. Themes explored in Cruise’s work include the interface between humans and animals, with particular emphasis on communication. In her doctoral thesis, she explored conditions of muteness – a silent, internal search for meaning that crosses the species divide.
For Solo Studios 2022, Wilma is collaborating with Andre van Vuuren.
