The site’s been ready for ages, www.wizkudowor.com, but I finally got some technical glitches sorted (thanks to Jenn and Sebastianna from Haverford’s Communications for help along the way).
Now feast your eyes. Wiz paints ephemeral faces, figures, and abstract shapes with just a foam roller and palette knife to sharpen the edges. Look closely and you’ll see layer upon layer reveal itself. Enjoy.
And while you’re at it, take a look back at Larry’s site (my Ghanaian dad), www.larryotoo.com. His vibrant, abstract paintings capture the rhythm and beat of daily life in Ghana, from sassy market ladies to slick jazz scenes to compositions of adinkra fertility symbols. Larry is known for his use of color, but recently he’s been painting in gray palettes with streaks of gold or bronze. Like his Facebook page, will ya? With seven more fans he can be a real “celeb.”
