Continuing its revolving art exhibitions in collaboration with one of Nairobi’s leading art galleries One Off Contemporary Art Gallery, Sankara Nairobi introduces “A Narrow Band of Wave Lengths” exhibition. Curated by Carol Lees around the theme of Monochromes, the newest exhibition brings together artists from diverse origins who work with black and white in different ways and who sculpt the same wooden material into immensely different pieces of art.
Thom Ogonga exhibits bold woodcut prints and Farrah Akbarali works meticulously with ink on paper. To compliment the two dimensional works, three sculptors has been chosen; Kenyan veteran sculptor, Morris Foit needs little introduction and already has many works in the Sankara Nairobi collection. Charles Kamya hails from Uganda and whilst he is a committed and well established artist, he has not been shown extensively in Kenya. The work of ‘Baldy’ Osborne is one of Kenya’s best kept secrets. The sophistication of this sculptor’s finish is indicative of a master craftsman in his chosen field.
This magnificent exhibition is on display and on sale at the hotel’s 2nd floor atrium until January 2017. For more information about the exhibition, artists and artworks kindly contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call +254 20 420 8096.
