Leave a comment

Charles Sekano (2009)

In a new show opening tomorrow night at Ed Cross, South African painter and musician Charles Sekano continues his exploration of loss and womanhood with a series of canvases entitled ‘House of Women’.

Exiled from his native South Africa in his early twenties as a result of apartheid, Sekano lived and painted in Nairobi until his return to a newly liberated SA in 1997. Reflecting on his years in exile and the artistic practice they inspired, Sekano once said, “This Woman theme is my landscape. The only piece of property I own. Woman is the only country I have.”

Private View: 10th February, 6.30-9.30
