INTRODUCING LUCIA EARLE

Antigua - +1268.726-0205

2011/2012

?

Lucia Earle is a South African artist who trained at the Johannesburg Art Foundation in 1997 and 1998. In her 3rd year of History of Art at UNISA, she discovered a fascination for African masks and wooden fishing boats from around the world. She has been a working, travelling [part-time] artist ever since.  After crossing the Atlantic Ocean on a small hand-built wooden boat, Lucia had the opportunity to live and work in Mali, West Africa. [Research into the heart of the Dogon country, and an exciting commission to record the masks from an impressive personal mask collection, produced a large body of work.] She went on to live in Tanzania for a year where she painted the beautiful and ruggedly built fishing boats around the southern shores of Lake Victoria. Her art making process involves photography and painting mostly with oil on canvas. She sketches a lot with pastels and charcoal and you can see how her travels have guided her passions.

 

" I am influenced by my travels; people's life journeys crossing with mine; issues of poverty in the world and solutions. While living in Tanzania I was introduced to a documentary called Darwin's Nightmare which outlines issues such as the recurring themes of war and survival in Africa. I have investigated the connection of Africa to the Caribbean and its migrations, often reflecting its stark contrast to the West. Thank you again for your time and your interest in my work."
