Meet the Ghanaian – based artist Lois Selasie Arde – Acquah who creates hand drawings of her intricate and unique monochrome patterns on various surfaces to explore the idea of seemingly repetitive activities. With time, her initial process has evolved into a process of cutting thus creating soft sculptures.
For Arde – Acquah, she is particularly drawn towards a process that is physically, mentally and emotionally draining.
One that demands a painstaking dedication of oneself to create something. A process that is difficult, ‘hard’ and almost impossible to achieve.
One that is tiring and leads to boredom. Usually before an audience, she uses her body as a medium to express this idea of seemingly repetitive activities. Arde – Acquah pursed a Master’s Degree (2016 -2018) and Bachelor of Art (2011 – 2015) in Fine Arts at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana.
