For the inaugural Proof Edition, we are delighted to present work by Luther Konadu. Both unique artworks were commissioned specifically for this project. Sales of each edition support our education and exhibition programs

Untitled Ceramic Portraits #2, Edition of 10

The two editions are part of Konadu's ongoing series Untitled Ceramic Portraits. The series parses the possibility of portraiture through photography in abstract terms. It ultimately pursues the questions: How to refer to the body without showing it’s likeness? How to open up depiction towards successive directions?

Luther Konadu is a writer and artist of Ghanaian descent based in Winnipeg Manitoba. Konadu is G44's 2018-19 writer-in-residence, and was a featured artist in Proof 25 (2018). He is a content creator for the online publication Public Parking. A project for highlighting the working practices of emerging creators and thinkers. He is also a writing contributor for Akimbo. His studio labour is project-based and realized through photographic print media and painting processes. He is interested in how the legacies of those mediums continue to shape prevailing perceptions of group identities. He uses his work to reinterpret those image-making mediums. Konadu lives and works on Treaty One Territory, the stolen lands of the Anishinaabe, Métis, Cree, Dakota and Oji-Cree Nations.
