Ezra Wube is a Brooklyn-based artist, originally from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, who works in mixed media; encompassing drawing, painting, installation, performance, photography and animation. Ezra Wube’s time-based painting and video works often explore the idea of belonging to two worlds. According to the artist, “as an immigrant one can never be fully part of the present or the past.” Wube attempts to reconcile these in-between spaces by connecting multiple realities, places, and moments in time through the dynamism of painted imagery. During In Practice: Works in Progress, Wube will explore a new direction, Color Mythology, which is the study of the psyche of colors. Collectively over time, the painting and animation will illustrate a map of ideas and reflections about color. In this interactive stop-motion animation painting, Wube will continue to evolve the painting by focusing on one color every two weeks.
Ezra will be leading workshops with families on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 – 5:00 PM.
