Heller Gallery is pleased to present What Do You See, the gallery’s first exhibition of new work by Ghanaian artist Anthony Amoako-Attah.  This is also Attah’s first exhibition in the United States.  

Anthony Attah kilnforms glass plate and powders to make pieces which use the colors and patterns of Kente designs and Adinkra symbols. Through the language of Kente cloth, a Ghanaian textile, traditionally handwoven of strips of silk & cotton, but now mass produced as printed fabric, Attah explores themes of personal and tribal identity, commodification, globalization and migration.  The works in What Do You See were created in the fall of 2022, when Attah was an Emerging Artist-in-Residence at the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, WA.
