New Work - Painting


Zemba Luzamba

Groups of smartly dressed figures appear against abstracted coloured backgrounds – gathered around a table, holding umbrellas, clasping each other’s hands.

Each of Congolese artist Zemba Luzamba’s paintings begin as a written concept, often inspired by specifical social, cultural, and political movements or activities. However, the artist deliberately removes contextual background detail to focus the viewer’s attention on the human aspects – body language, clothing, facial expressions – and create space for interpretation. In the name of…, the artist’s first solo exhibition with Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, presents a captivating collection of recent works that delve into the subtleties of how we relate to and make sense of the world around us.
