4 June - 18 July 2015

Stevenson Gallery (Cape Town) presents simultaneous exhibitions by Marvin Luvualu Antonio, Iman Issa, Peterson Kamwathi, Matthew Alexander King, Mame-Diarra Niang, Thierry Oussou, Zakara Raitt, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, and Ephrem Solomon.

 

Ephrem Solomon's Folk Memory is a series of painted and collaged woodcut panels. Trained as a printmaker, Solomon carves his images into the surface, revealing the gouges and marks of production, to make portraits intensified by colour and pattern.
