“I was intrigued by the idea that the drawing that I would spend several hours making on a gallery wall would eventually be erased to make space for another artwork. I saw this as a metaphor for life itself. The knowledge that I exist at one moment in time only to exit for something else to fill the space that I once occupied was a very humbling realization.” –Victor Ekpuk (Art of Victor Ekpuk), as published in the 2015 summer Quarterly, from a conversation he had with Smooth Nzewi, Curator of African Art.
