SOLY CISSE: Men and Lives – Sulger Buel Gallery
By Eddie Saint-Jean POSTED 10 June 2019
Senegalese painter and sculptor Soly Cissé presents a body of work which drives expressive channels through figurative subjects – with a tilt towards abstraction. Humour, irony and, of course, colour are underscored emphatically.
Soly Cissé I Des Hommes et Des Vies III (Detail) I 2017 I Acrylic and oil on canvas I 200 x 200 x 3 cm
The work is an examination of human relations and the human psyche. His subjects are herded in conversation, yet set apart in individual worlds with the inevitable overlap displayed through this ‘Expressive’ use of colour.
