We Face Forward: Art from West Africa Today

We Face Forward: Art from West Africa Today

This new title in the library includes our work-study student Lucy Azubuike.  Lucy is an MFA candidate in Sculpture.  The collage work below entitled “24 2011” is part of Azubuike’s Wear & Tear series found in We Face Forward (pp. 40-41).

"…Azubuike’s collages evoke rich and varied visual associations, camouflage, peeling skin, a blazing sun.  As Azubuike asks, ‘it’s not just a matter of seeing these things, but asking where do these images lead you to?’"
