Press Release (excerpt)

There is much to say about the development of abstract painting as both a practice and a concept. In its history, it has been dissected, debated, stripped apart, and put back together. It's linked to national identities, politics, social movements, and even the spiritual. We must never attempt to ignore these histories or limit them in scope as they presently live in the current creation of abstraction. Tegene Kunbi, not only understands this, he relishes in it. It's the very process existing within his work that represents not only the history of abstract painting but the narratives that live within him as an artist, an Ethiopian, and an individual.
