Art: Hidden African Canvas

3년 전

Hello, lovely Steemians, I would like to start this blog with a little Disclaimer: None of the images below are mine. Credits are always given below.*

African Canvas Margaret Courtney-Clarke

The Art of Africa is a casualty of colonial exploitation, surviving principally in the museums of other countries. ~ Nadine Gordimer

“My objective in this work is to document an extraordinary art form - vernacular art and architecture in West Africa - that is not transportable and therefore not seen in museums around the world. It is an attempt to capture the unseen Africa, a glimpse into the homes and into the spirit of very proud and dignified peoples. In much the same way as I photographed the art of Ndebele women, I have drawn on my personal affinity for the art itself, for methods, design and form, rather than the socio-anthropological or political realities of a people or continent in dilemma. These images portray a unique tradition of Africa, a celebration of an indigenous rural culture in which the women are the artists and the home her canvas.”

Here shows that art has a very high value and high quality, with economic limitations and all the limitations of technological sophistication that today all countries have but with their skilful hands with their culture can create an unmatched artistic value.
