Today on National Women's Day, we continue to pay homage to the works of the women that have been responsible for being the voice that speaks for children's rights.
Dina Cormick is a Zambian native from Nkana who is known for her work as a feminist theologian and artist. Born in 1942, Dina has worked as a free-lance artist since 1976 from her studio in Durban where she has created numerous woodcut and lino-block prints to image the need for change. Her works have also been responsible for arousing political and social concern and challenging the particularly narrow vision of Christianity practiced by so many South Africans.
Dina Cormick's collections can be found in places such as the Constitutional Court, Pretoria, Gauteng; Harare National Gallery, Zimbabwe; Tape Aids for the Blind, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal; the National Heart Foundation, Johannesburg, Gauteng and the Durban Botanical Gardens, KwaZulu-Natal. Her religious artworks can be found in over 300 churches throughout southern Africa. Dina has exhibited widely in solo exhibitions in South Africa, Europe and America.
