Marcia Kure is a Nigerian-born artist who uses watercolor and collage techniques to create works influences by Nigerian Uli painting and images of people of African descent across the diaspora. The diversity of the images, which range from collages with elements of Hip-hop and high fashion to abstracted depictions of black bodies reflect Kures various world travels.
Much of Kure’s works, particularly her fashion images, also play with gender roles and perceptions of black masculinity and black femininity.
Works by Marcia Kure are currently on view at the Susan Inglett Gallery in New York.
