Featured Artist: Ezra Wube

Ezra Wube:

“In my work I am interested in time, place and memory. My art practice is performative and involves my body as a primal means of communication, affirming I am here. As a person of two cultures (Ethiopia and U.S.A), I am in a continuous dialogue between here and there, tradition and modernity. While collaging my past with present experiences, I attempt to make a third entity that is in both the past and the present. My effort to make a narrative is left ambiguous, so that the line between what is real and what is imagined, what is sensical, and nonsensical becomes faint. By refusing a concrete representation, I have found the freedom to make art that is consistent with the flux of my life.”
