Abuse: A Goliath undertaking

‘I used to joke about being a Wall Street stockbroker, but I was never that way inclined. My father and two older brothers are artistic in various disciplines – visual and musical – but I was not born an artist,” said Gabrielle Goliath.

An affinity for fashion led her to study fashion design at Wits Technikon (now the University of Johannesburg). And during the course of her studies her garments began to take a sculptural form, strongly informed by conceptual design with form being necessary in providing a visual cue.

This preoccupation naturally progressed to a desire to study art and, after completing her national diploma in fashion design, Goliath registered and eventually graduated with a master’s in fine art at the University of the Witwatersrand.
