Sketches for Geometric Abstract Paintings and Corrupted Sound from a Visual Arts Lesson 2020
Digital HD file, 16:9, 4 minutes and 52 seconds, b&w, sound
Displays a succession of black & white geometric abstract drawings at different stages of composition with currupted sound from a recording of a visual arts and design lesson.
This piece was made in response to a commission from a private collector of contemporary African arts. When looking online at for works included in the collection I noticed the absence of abstract works. The process of making this piece took me back to my visit to the Africa Remix exhibition at the Hayward gallery in 2005 and also to my experience as lecturer of visual arts in Cape Verde - two experiences amongst several others that form my understanding of how contemporary African arts is represented.
