Biography from Stephan Welz & Co Johannesburg:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Cecily Sash is remembered in South Africa equally as artist and art teacher.  Her long and distinguished career is firmly rooted in South Africa, although she chose exile in England in 1974 less for political and social reasons than for personal and artistic ones.  She was a member of the short-lived Amadlozi Group in the early 1950s and taught at the University of the Witwatersrand through the 1950s and 1960s.  Early travels and study in Europe and America had introduced her to international trends of Op and Pop art, which led to experiments with Modernism in provincial South Africa.  1955 through to 1962 the enduring motifs in her work were a series of anthropomorphic birds, which take many forms in her paintings and tapestries.
