Mixed media. Paint, charcoal and collage on canvas. Covered with labels and matches. Without frame.
The work of the multidisciplinary Senegalese artist Samba Fall (Dakar, 1977) combines multiple materials. Samba Fall covers his canvases with large and small pieces of paper, printed notes and labels, which he then paints over. This special form of painted collage creates depth in the work, because the printing of the labels can still be (partly) read. This work is covered at the top and bottom edges with a strip of matches.
This work has minor damage: some matches are missing from the edges of the canvas.
