black ishi
2006 2006-1
Works completed in 2006 were shown in the Barbadiana 2006 traveling exhibition and "Conversations with Guru" an exhibition by Guru,along with works of ras Akyemi and ras Ishi, at the Whispers Art Gallery. Many of these works were studies for major or larger pieces. They include: Chattel one (1), Chattel two (2), Gang Workers, Gang Workers one (1) and Gang Workers two (2). In the majority of these pieces the artist extends his earlier exploration of the particularities of black and white on canvas. The distinguishing subtleties of the works include the artist’s use of texture and his discreet exploitation of the primary underpaintings that flicker and shimmer through the impasto of the major “non-colors”/colors, black and white.
