This January, Ukama Gallery hosts a new show by an internationally acclaimed and prolific artist Paul Ygartua. The drama and originality of the new collected work is achieved through the nuanced interplay of shape, colour and texture. The illusion of depth is striking and consistent, brought to life on a backdrop formed by two completely different media: traditional canvas and transparent plexiglass, the medium developed by the artist in 1980. The effect is to reveal impulsive, passionate and energetic aspects of our universe - the deepest, ineffable mysteries of life captured with simplicity and eloquence. The emotional impact is deliberately direct and powerful.
