ART WORK OF THE MONTH- 28th March 2018 at 4pm.

March 9, 2018

The international Women’s Day is being celebrated each year on March 8.

To celebrate women’s day, we have selected Ignatius Sserulyos’ Sculpture piece as our art work of the Month. We shall be discussing the artwork and talking about the artist.

Ignatius Sserulyo

 Born in 1936 in Masaka, Sserulyo was brought up as a Christian in a rural part of the Buganda region of southern Uganda. After his secondary education at St Mary’s College Kisubi, he joined Makerere School of Fine Art in 1961 where he studied painting and sculpture. He taught in several schools, before returning to Makerere Art School in 1969 to pursue a master’s degree in painting, which he completed in 1973.

Sserulyo’s passion for texture and modeling of colour spills over into sculpture. Produced in 1963 his cement figure Old Woman is conceived within the same essence of tactility and great attention for the subject. The subject itself, which places emphasis on old age, brings out all the physical problems that can affect an older person, while yet retaining dignity and pride.

Come and be part of this noble cause of History writing and documentation.
