El Anatsui

Currently showing at the Brooklyn Museum (Feb. 8th - Aug. 4th)

El Anatsui was born in Anyanko, Ghana in 1944. Many of Anatsui’s sculptures are mutable in form, conceived to be so free and flexible that they can be shaped in any way and altered in appearance for each installation. Working with wood, clay, metal, and—most recently—the discarded metal caps of liquor bottles, Anatsui breaks with sculpture’s traditional adherence to forms of fixed shape while visually referencing the history of abstraction in African and European art. The colorful and densely patterned fields of the works assembled from discarded liquor-bottle caps also trace a broader story of colonial and postcolonial economic and cultural exchange in Africa, told in the history of cast-off materials. The sculptures in wood and ceramics introduce ideas about the function of objects (their destruction, transformation, and regeneration) in everyday life, and the role of language in deciphering visual symbols.

I'm not complaining, just telling it like it is,

what I said was, each 36in x 48in plate takes 6 to 8 hrs

but I can only carve for an hour at a time

Here's an assignment i did for a figure drawing class. It's charcoal and conte on toned paper. Approximately 2 hrs. I hate the gritty feeling of charcoal, it feels like scratching a chalk board. However, I'm getting use to it.

Going to art school it was thoroughly pushed upon me that art was subjective. So every piece was open to different interpretations. With that being said most of the art you see, if you thinks it's trash, you're probably right. I've seen a lot of hacks, especially local artist, some instructors even. Id like some Audrey Kawasaki prints though
