Exhibitions: Gravity and Grace: Monumental Works by El Anatsui

El Anatsui: Red Block

Red Block reveals El Anatsui testing the aesthetic limits of his invented medium. He explores the monumentality and meditativeness of a single color—suggestive, perhaps, of paintings by Mark Rothko or Gerhard Richter—yet at the same time deliberately introduces subtle variations, activating an otherwise uniform surface with small, intentional surprises that draw the viewer closer.
