G5 : Mixed Media Objects


At present Embeha’s mixed media work consists of around 500 objects, which have been divided into the following 4 groups:


Group 1:  Paper, Mounted on Hardboard

This group consists of around 150 pieces, each measuring 21 x 14.8 cm. Process-wise all began as larger works—including paintings, photos, larger drawings, pastel and pencil work—only to become condensed into their present, quasi-photographic forms.

Group 2: Paper

This group consists of around 350 pieces divided into two groups.
Most of these works are one-off prints created from drawings done in various media.

The subjects of most of these works are very similar to those of art throughout the ages, including family groups, friends, social gatherings, moving through city spaces, mothers with children. All depict specific social situations of persons, places and things.
