Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui


Recycled objects whose surfaces reflect a history of use, 


a history of human interaction.


A Nomadic Aesthetic by El Anatsui
"If you leave your country, you develop a kind of nomadic mentality.  If I had lived in Ghana, my mind wouldn't have roamed.  I wouldn't have expanded or I would have been too comfortable."


I couldn't take my eyes off Mr. Anatsui's riveting work.
