Alfred Conteh | Sculptor, Painter & Mixed-Media Artist
This two-part exhibition revisits Alfred Conteh’s Two Fronts and Tetanus series. Conteh’s works are inspired by daily life in areas of Atlanta where mostly African Americans reside. His landscape paintings explore the notion of freedom in relation to living one’s best life.

Artist Statement

TWO FRONTS

This body of work is a visual exploration 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 this series are primarily personified in patinated colossuses that commemorate the people, culture, and battles that the populations they tower over have fought and continue to fight. We are at war on two fronts. – ALFRED CONTEH
