The new paintings created by Michael Carson have a timeless quality. His imagery transplants viewers to a world of intimate moments and reveals the emotional contact onlookers get from gazing at the human figure. The sublime beauty of Carson’s subjects is reminiscent of the “Truth, Goodness, and Beauty” advocated by Aristotle, which transcends the limitations of place and time. While timeless, the imagery in Carson’s paintings retains, however, a distinct, contemporary flair. Michael Carson’s show at Bonner David Galleries, opens during the holiday season, on December 13 and will be on display until January 13. His spectacular new work is guaranteed to make an impact on any viewer.

“Set in Stone” New Shona Sculptures from Africa

Shona Sculpture derives its name from the Shona tribe, their heritage, and the ancient tradition of working stone. Shona artists from Zimbabwe have achieved worldwide fame and exhibit their works in countries around the world.

Born of an artistic environment free from the constraints of formal artistic rules and boundaries, the Shona Sculpture Movement has become known as the most compelling and evocative form of art to emerge from Africa in the 20th century.  First appearing in the late 1950’s, Shona sculpture soon captured the attention of the West and has since been featured in many of the world’s finest museums, galleries, and private collections.

Prominent among Shona artists, Moses Nyanhongo is the son of Claud Nyanhongo. As a child, he watched his father turn boulders into beautiful works of art at their rural home in Eastern Zimbabwe. After assisting his father for many years, Moses moved to Harare to join his artist siblings – internationally acclaimed sculptors Agnes, Gedion, Wellington and Euwitt.

Moses Nyanhongo’s sculptures can be recognized by his use of contrast and texture. The combination of dark and light colors, polished and unpolished parts give Nyanhongo’s sculptures an irresistible appeal. His work has been exhibited in the United States, Germany, Holland, South Africa, and the United Kingdom.  Bonner David Galleries is proud to represent such a fine artist. Moses Nyanhongo’s work will be prominently displayed during the Shona Sculpture Show (which includes new works from 7 Shona artists), starting October 11, 2019. He will be demonstrating his technique at the Bonner David Galleries during Art Walk on October 10, 2019.

Visit us for our ‘Demonstrate’ Art Walk, where Shona artist Moses Nyanhongo will be in the gallery: Thursday, October 10, 2019 from 6 pm to 9 pm.

“Set in Stone” |  Moses Nyanhongo, Shona Culture Masterpieces. Opens Friday, October 11, 2019, From 6 – 8 pm. To inquire about RSVP, contact: Bonner David Galleries, 7040 E. Main Street, Scottsdale, AZ 85251 | Call 480-941-8500 or Email art@bonnerdavid.com
