ARTIST STATEMENT

George Afedzi Hughes' work uses the history of colonialism as a basis to highlight parallels between colonialism’s brutal history and contemporary global conflicts. In today’s informational age, global occurrences of violence reach us instantaneously: transmitting fear and unease. His work interprets the spectacle of news, history and social engagement into visual form, by appropriating imagery from global popular culture such as sports and ritual. Hughes revisits the harsh realities of colonialism through metaphor.

BIO

Born in Ghana in 1962, George Afedzi Hughes studied painting at The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, College of Art, where he earned a BA in Art and an MA in Art Education. After graduation he spent two years in France and England painting, exhibiting, and visiting museums and galleries. The artworks created during this period were shown in 1994 in a major solo exhibition at The Artists Alliance Gallery in Accra, Ghana. In the same year, Hughes settled in the United States where he later received an MFA in Painting and Drawing from Bowling Green State University. Since then he has shown his work internationally in addition to teaching.  His paintings, performances, and installations have been shown in Canada, China, Denmark, Dubai, England, France, Germany, Ghana, Holland, Northern Ireland, Nigeria, Portugal, South Africa, Sweden, Uruguay, Wales and the United States.
