A retrospective exhibition of Rizpah Amadasun…
Local Artist Rizpah Amadasum is exhibiting in the Community Gallery at the Museum of Gloucester until end of December 2021. Rizpah has been selected to attend the Royal College of Art London; this exhibition celebrates her work and this success as a local artist.
Rizpah's artwork explores identity in positive Black narratives which celebrate solidarity, joy and our interconnected roots. As an Anglo-African conceptual artist, Rizpah is influenced by West African symbolism and the way it tells a story about belief, history, and empowerment.
At present her work is defined by rich warm portraits full of vibrant colours. Unlimited by ideas of traditional canvas; Rizpah's work includes body painting, set designs, and a collection of Afrocentric bomber jackets featuring hand-painted artwork in her clothing line, Rizzen.
"To get into the Royal College of Art as a Black woman from a low income family I hope inspires the future generations to pursue their purpose."
