William Kentridge- get excited.
William Kentridge, my chosen artist, is best known for his short, animated films using charcoal. His films have gained popularity through the 90's, and he is still producing animation and drawings today. As Kentridge has a political science background and is from South Africa, most of his work reflects the problems of South Africa, or self portraits of Kentridge. Themes in his politically-charged work include time, change, and social-class struggles. The attached work includes the video "Felix in Exile" which I will discuss in class. Overall his work is uniquely his own and can't be compared to a lot of other artists, which is refreshing.
