kamau ware – ARTIST STATEMENT
Celestial adj. positioned in or relating to the sky, or outer space
We inhabit the earth which inhabits the solar system so we too are creatures of the stars, living and breathing in space. Celestial. We are beauty. Divine. Fragile. Able to move beyond the edge of identity and be one with the stuff elements are made of…
“Celestial” is the first score from my Portrait In Parts Collection – an evolving suite of images that sum up the identity of my subjects without revealing their face. The collection is inquisitive about comfort within one’s own skin and the silent negotiation between the sense of self and aspiration. The collection has two main movements. Portraiture that represents parts that define us. Landscapes which work against individuality and illustrate common forms and universal design.
The seven images in this exhibition can be read sequentially in either direction to present a narrative of solar dimensions. There is a presence of design my work is seeking to explore through time spent with each image. It may reveal itself slowly or not at all. The titles are suggestions, invitations to see one possible interpretation of the human form as the extension and support of the earth’s surface.
