"Desire, longing, wonderment, strength, resilience, power and hope can be seen in the face and figures of my work. I employ thick, loose, flat and cryptic gestural brushstrokes of Acrylic paint without inhibition, fear or conformity, like the way a sculptor sculpts human figures from clay, I sculpt my figures with the brush. The images I create become metaphors of people's sentiments and also serve as protagonists to represent the masses and advocate for the voiceless. Not trash, but people. Not remnants, but lives - look closer and they will tell you their stories. I usually do not base my works off of any particular individuals, usually they are creations of my imagination, but this particular work entitled "Nonchalant 2, (Nana Kwesi wiafe)" is inspired by a photograph of an acquaintance called "Nana Kwesi Wiafe." I wanted to explore a reminiscent portrait that reveals desire, longing, strength, power and resilience. - Isshaq Ismail
