El Anatsui's Gravity & Grace @ the Akron Art Museum

I had put it off to the last minute but now, given my upcoming travel schedule, is my last chance to see the exhibit by the sculpture El Anatsui. Drawing on his Ghanaian heritage and time teaching in Nigeria, El Anatsui use found and discarded objects, especially labels and caps from liquor bottles to create works fluid and provocative.

I realize I should have been living with these works but I let time run out DOR that. I'm grateful for the 45 minutes I had with these intensely attractive works.

The photo is a detail of a work called Eli (wall).
