El Anatsui

Working with found materials, the Ghanaian artist, El Anatsui creates sculptures that are mutable in form and flexible in the way that they create installations.  By working with discarded materials such as metal caps of liquor bottles, he assembles densely patterned fields.  The sculptures introduce ideas about the function of objects (their destruction, transformation, and regeneration).
