Meanwhile, Sungi Mlengeya

I found Tanzanian artist Sungi Mlengeya’s paintings … okay so I forget where. She’s been living in my browser for six months, a monochromatic oasis of calm I’ll occasionally linger on while coasting from tab to tab. Her positive-as-negative use of space, as with Rozenn Le Gall’s work on fields of black in last week’s Meanwhile, it’s like catnip to a book designer. So striking from a bookshelf, so much space for copy! The “early works” bit of her site is worth a look, where you can trace the development of her approach from one painting to the next; the always-fascinating artists’ journey to a signature style. Intrigued to see where she goes with it next.
