Really enjoyed this art (and these artists) this year too. 1) @tpstudio – I first caught Thomas J Price’s sculptures in London at the excellent @shonibarestudio “Talisman in the Age of Difference” exhibition. Thomas’ sculptures depict black male subjects and explore the relationship between representation and perception. Really cool and interesting stuff. 2 and 3) Lisa Brice – a South African artist who spent a lot of time working in Trinidad. She has a great use of colour and v much enjoyed her depiction of the female body. 4) Hilma Af Klint (her Paintings for The Future exhibition is still on at the @guggenheim in NY until April 23rd 2019), a Swedish artist (1862-1944) whose abstract work was well ahead of its time, mystical and fascinating. Defo a must see. 5) Sculptures by Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957), also at @guggenheim (in its permanent collection) – really interesting to see the African influences in these sculptures. 6 and 7) @fireleibaez’s Joy Out of Fire exhibition at @schomburgcenter was a sight of wonder dedicated to reimaginings of Black women. Now finished but check her out elsewhere. 8) Zimbabwean artist Kudzanai-Violet Hwami’s “Sam in Mother’s Factory”. If in the UK, you can see more of her work at London’s @tyburngallery 9) “Queens No. 2” by @jeremiahquarshie (born in Ghana, lives and works in Lagos, Nigeria). #blackart #blackartists #hilmaafklint #femaleartist #soulfood
