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.
