It Was Her - It Is And Forever Will Be, is an exploratory series of paintings, drawings, and mixed-media by Lio Bumba and collaborators. It is a study into the artist self assessment of woman in society and the male gaze. The study is greatly influenced by the works of past mid-century male artists namely Otto Mueller, Matisse and Picasso. Further reference to mention is the influence of performative artists Yvonne Rainer and Isadora Duncan, who’s inspiring works and activism played a key role in setting the tone for the creations on display.
Lio Bumba, Lio is a self taught artist who boldly envisions the modern American experience in swaths of bright folk imagery, undoubtedly, inspired by his African descent but driven by current events and politics. His works range between paintings, drawings, mixed-media to performative art installations.
