News – Wangechi Mutu: textures

Posted on June 21, 2013 by Tristan Deratz View Comments

The visceral textures of Wangechi Mutu's artworks arrest the attention of visitors to the MCA's Level 1 galleries.

The furs of Foxy Lady (2011) (above), the melancholy dripping of My Dirty Little Heaven (2010) (left) and the hacked out plaster of Moth Girls (2010) and I belong to you, you belong to me (2007) (below) in all contribute to what is an unnerving and engaging collection of works.

To showcase these particularly textural works, I used a Canon 1DC with a pair of 24mm and 50mm cine lenses for the videos you see on this page, plus a Lytro, which is a light field camera for the stills.





This is a Lytro image, an interactive photo made by a light field camera. Click to refocus, click and drag to shift perspective and scroll to zoom in.

Roll over the Lytro logo to see the image caption.
