“Remembrance & Resurrection” was my main focus during the time of my residency. An artwork in honour of the late Ian Marley who contributed to Tankwa Artscape in 2021. I was privileged to be lectured by Ian, in drawing, as an art student 10 years ago and his influence during my education still resonates in much of my work today.
Using “Echo of the Desert” by Akunzo (2019) as a platform this piece journeys through Death, Grief and Resurrection through the Legacy that one leaves in remembrance when all else is forgotten.
Alongside this work I continued with the ever-developing “Tankwa Runes” that echo, reflect and draw out the symbolism of the unique place and its impact on people.
