DESCRIPTION

Known for his large-scale textile installations, Abdoulaye Konaté’s first exhibition Blain|Southern London will feature all new works, which continue his exploration of formal colour composition. Inspired by the hues found in rocks and minerals, abstract works with subtle gradations of colour and embroidered accents predominate.

Konaté’s vivid, thought-provoking installations have their roots in his Malian homeland. The materials he uses, woven and dyed cotton, are integral to the country’s culture and by extension, to his practice.  ‘I use textiles in the same way other artists use paint, steel or marble - it is my colour palette and medium for artistic expression.’
