We follow on our James Ensor article with a taste of african art. We have focused on sculpture because african artists have a tendency to consider all art in 3 dimensions, even paintings are meant to be experienced three-dimensionally. Distinct from the static form of traditional Western sculpture African art displays animation, a readiness to move.
This is what is so fascinating about african art, the fact that they are mode modern in many aspects then their “civilized” couterparts. They have a keen eye form abstraction, for the purity of form. I hope you’ll enjoy this small collection of african art.
