Gareth Nyandoro, “…READ ALL ABOUT”
Daily life in Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, is the subject of the work of Gareth Nyandoro, an artist who calls the city home. For his first show in NYC, Nyandoro captures the hustle and bustle of the African nation’s largest conurbation in broad rough strokes on pieces of paper mounted on large expanses of unstretched canvas. As part of his process, Nyandoro often creates his images (of people or advertising on the street) with furrows of sharp, etching-like lines incised in the surface of his pieces—a technique that speaks to his background as a printmaker.
