Exploring Roots and New Directions

They danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!" Jack Kerouac, On the Road. (1957)

    Ransome Stanley (b. 1953), British artist of Nigerian-German descent.

    Stanley was born in London to a Nigerian father and German mother, and he currently lives and works in Munich. His art engages postocoloniality, modernity and 19th century colonial depictions of the subaltern. Stanley engages the globalized and exotified stereotypes of Africans - dominant among 19th century bourgeois Westerners and still in today’s world. He interrogates these idioms as false markers of the dualism between colony and the metropole.
