Art Exhibit - Africa Revealed Layer by Layer, Paper Tole Photography by Licia Priest
Licia Priest’s current series, “Africa Revealed Layer by Layer” focuses on revealing seldom understood African perspectives to heighten awareness of the continent’s diversity. This particular body of work features photographic images taken in Zimbabwe in 2016 that show the beauty of the people and varying landscapes. The process used to create the finished artwork is called ‘paper tole.’ It involves using multiples of the same image and cutting and shaping each layer and reassembling the image to create depth, form and 3-dimensional space.
"Africa Revealed Layer by Layer" is on view in the Allenton Gallery at the Durham Arts Council through October 31, 2019. The artist reception will be held during Third Friday Durham, October 18, at 6pm.
