Owusu-Ankomah: Microcron – Kusum
Dates: 15th Sept – 29th Oct 2011
Venue: October Gallery, 24 Old Gloucester Street, London WC1N 3AL
A body of new works by the renowned artist Owusu-Ankomah.
Born in Sekondi, Ghana, in 1956, Owusu-Ankomah pursued studies in Fine Arts at Ghanatta College in Accra before moving to Bremen, Germany where he now lives and works.
His charged paintings on canvas depict an alternate world wherein monumental human figures – his core motif – are shown moving within an ocean of signs that surround, support and, in fact, define them.
The way in which these figures coexist and interact with various symbolic sets has developed through distinct phases over time, reflecting Owusu-Ankomah’s own journey of spiritual discovery.
