Arthur Timothy - Postcards from a Promised Land

Tue-Sat: 10-6pm

Gallery 1957, London, is proud to announce an exhibition of new works from artist Arthur Timothy (b. 1957, Ghana) based on memories and photographs of Sierra Leone.

Titled POSTCARDS FROM A PROMISED LAND, the exhibition surveys the people, architecture, and natural beauty of Sierra Leone, against a wider backdrop of the nation’s history and hopes.

‘Nature is kind of eating away at it all,’ explains Timothy reflecting on the organic matter within the work, ‘almost every year you have to rebuild or re-paint it, a further reminder of the country’s sustained state of metamorphosis and the ongoing triumph of beauty over hardship.’
