Ermias Kifleyesus


... 'There is a compulsion in the work by Kifleyesus as there was with Magritte, to pull an image of the world into the sphere of his work. This is not about a depiction or representation but using fragments from the world to get to grips with or even precipitate the mystery of the reality around us. Both artists’ worlds are of course very different. In today’s modern society, the world in which Kifleyesus moves, there are notes like multiculturalism, migration, globalisation, over-consumption, and the over-population of large cities. They implicitly form the background to which his work relates and the elements the artist appropriates and makes his own.’ ... Eva Wittocx"
