October Gallery has been working closely together with El Anatsui since 1993. This shows presents a wonderful spread of this artist’s repertoire including some of his iconic and enormous shimmering bottle top tapestries, his wood sculptures hued with chainsaws, welding torches and power tools and his prints done in collaboration with Factum Arte which are a testament to the the beauty of the artist’s painstaking process.
“The amazing thing about working with these metallic ‘fabrics’ is that the poverty of the materials used in no way precludes the telling of rich and wonderful stories" ~El Anatsui
