Gorgeous drawings and paintings by artist Alfred Conteh, from Fort Valley, Georgia. In this series, “Two Fronts”, Conteh utilizes metal powders and chemical compounds, in addition to acrylic and dry media, to create a weathering effect in each portrait.
He explains, the images are “visual explorations of how African diasporal societies in the south are fighting social, economic, educational and psychological wars from within and without to survive. The honest and false narratives of history embodied in his series are primarily personified in patinated colossuses that symbolize the culture and realities of the populations they tower over, and the battles we’ve fought and continue to fight. We are at war on two fronts.”
