Event description

Description

As a rejection of traditional mediums, Amponsah’s practice is concerned with the revival of existing imagery through detailed collage techniques. Following an artists talk, ‘In The Age of Everything, How Do We Create from Nothing?’ will encourage participants to explore themes of love which extend beyond the canons of family, age, community, race, gender and hierarchies – in an approach which privileges everyday commodities as materials with limitless creative potential. Focusing on teamwork and acceptance, Amponsah’s workshop has been designed to create a social space which celebrates creative inabilities and technical restrictions.

Larry Amponsah (b. 1989, Accra – Ghana) studied Painting at the Royal College of Art, after partially studying for a Masters in Painting at Jiangsu University in China, he also received a BFA in Painting at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi. Amponsah’s practice engages with the politics of imagery, utilising collage as an ongoing methodology to explore both representation and painterly possibilities.
