Hair in African art and culture by Niangi Batulukisi( Book )

16 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The exhibition, Hair in African Art and Culture, and this book serve to introduce a mode of African art too little and too infrequently recognized or appreciated. Field photographs and sculptures sample the rich variety of hair arrangements that exist or have existed in traditional African life and art. Despite the many references to the abstract character of African masks and figures it is clear that two areas of the real world were accurately, indeed realistically, depicted: scarification and coiffures." "Essays and notes address a number of aspects of African and African-American hair and collectively hint at the variety, complex meanings and history of hair styles. Some of the essays are personal, some present the nature of coiffures in the cycle of life: from birth to death, from celebration to mourning." "In traditional and modern Africa, and the African-American diaspora, hair styles establish a personal identity that reflects both fashion and aesthetic choice."--Jacket

Mumuye : sculpture from Nigeria : the human figure reinvented by Frank Herreman( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and French and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through 41 masterworks, Mumuye Sculpture from Nigeria reveals some of the most accomplished statues made by this Nigerian tribal group. The Mumuye artists' abstract interpretation of the human body, which recalls that of cubist and expressionist artists, has been immensely appealing to African art enthusiasts. Their anthropomorphic figures demonstrate an astonishing range of variations, testifying to their makers' unbridled creativity and limitless inventiveness. Here, a meticulous analysis of the extraordinary forms of Mumuye figure - paying attention to their striking sense of motion - recognizes different workshops and even the hands of individual masters. A summary of the scant field-based studies discusses the figures' primary role as emblems of status and rank, their connections to ancestral veneration, and healing and divination practices. Though a selection of masks and other objects, this book reveals the beauty of Mumuye figurative sculpture

Lust for life : Tom Liekens by Tom Liekens( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in Dutch and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tom Liekens maakt monumentale schilderijen en collages met een heel eigen beeldtaal. Een onderwerp dat steeds terugkomt in zijn werk is de natuur in haar kunstmatige vorm, zoals we die bijvoorbeeld kennen uit dierentuinen en natuurhistorische musea. Of de manier waarop landschappen en dieren werden voorgesteld doorheen de kunstgeschiedenis, in sprookjes of in films. Zijn werk is doorspekt van de kunst- en cultuurhistorische citaten. Hij bekleedt met zijn eigenzinnige werk een volstrekt unieke positie in de kunstwereld. --
