Considering Shonibare's Views of Colonialism


Digital collage on canvas by E. Alana James

50cm x 50cm

Yinka Sonibare presents an iconic stance on two things Alana appreciates: 1) the negative impacts of colonialism and 2) that a persons ‘culture’ is a conglomerate of historical events played out in a global context. This piece considers those ideas as she layers forms from many EuroAmerican patterns and images.
