Another Sunday

list price: $500 | Discount: 43% | Views: 6948

Another Sunday depicts three women who have risen early to fetch water and begin their washing beyond the relative cool of their shadowed doorways and a small patch of purpling shade. In it we see that the heat of the day had baked the color from a native village at rest in Eastern Ghana. As Murnaziís yellows and rich reds dominate the painting, parched ground, sky and leafless trees are relieved by the coolness of the womenís dresses and their reflections in the rippling water.

Artist: Joseph King Murnazi

Joseph and his family come from the northern region of Ghana, and as his name suggests, is linked to tribal royalty. Joseph's tribe has a long history, and regularly organizes a number of festivals throughout the year including the "festival of lights." While Joseph's tribe is known for handmade crafts, his family is known for painting, and it was through his father's instruction that Joe learned to paint. While his father specializes in intricate portraits, Joseph prefers to depict people engaged in craft and in celebration. He aims to create excitement and movement in his paintings, in part, by choosing pastels combined with bold, bright colors.
