AFRICAN NEUTRALITY, 2024, freeform textile relief sculpture (from the African Spirit Series), approx 152cm x 183cm x 20cm... textile and tar on canvas.

...a vibrant tribute to Africa, through an amalgam or European and African textile... 

The African Spirit Series...

... ... creates a pop art-inspired metaphor for the cultural colonization of Africa.  The overall impressions of the pieces are that of colorful, pop art-inspired textile murals, reminiscent of the monumental installations within New York’s JFK American Airlines terminal.  At the heart is a symbolic mixing of European and African cultures, reflected through the integration of more-elegant, typically-European evening fabrics with the more-traditional, everyday patternwork worn by many African cultures. The result is a new and pleasing visual aesthetic.
