  • I see the connection between fine art and found objects,creativity,,light and texture, primitive and complex and small and large.together creating an awesome statement about simplo
    Icily moving into something really rich which moves and transforms like people and life.

  • One connection I make to his artwork is that it resembles a mosaic on a wall or really anywhere!!! Like each individual tile on a mosaic each time his artwork is moved or hung it is in a different or entirely unique position!!!! His artwork is so unique to start with but having it move brings it to a whole new level!!!!!

  • Anatsui manipulates the sculptures through texture to make the works of art become more expressive and become alive.

  • The work is only as good as the individual piece that is connected to the entire work. The one is the all

  • I see a connection with gravity. How it impacts how the pieces drape. Natural forces undeniably impact how we see things
