A selection of work by Oakland, California-based visual artist and painter Muzae Sesay. Exploring the concept of memory and it’s limitations, Sesay’s paintings are recollections- both real and imagined:
“Certain paintings depict the struggle of trying to accurately remember a space from the past; small aspects or vignettes shift and blend together without a clear picture of the space as a whole. Some play with manipulating memory through a process of implanting a fake consciousness of a fake space; remembering how it felt to be somewhere that physically exists nowhere. Others come from a practice of empathy; imagining someone else’s memory and what that might feel like.”
