Size: 25 x 31 1/2
Medium: Mixed-Media, Collage on canvas
This piece is a mixed-media collagework using woodstrips, blanketcloths,
native raffias, paper, cottonstrings, etc. Like carollers from the
hinterlands, these shaggy musicians are simply folk revelers who
travel and play for a penny. And they sound off like unrehearsed
local brass band. The artist once invited them to perform at his
doorstep, not for the music, but to observe their peculiar bearing
and disposition. Unlike other performers they play unabashedly outdoor
in a broad daylight, not quite the type of company for Picasso's
mysterious monk to play around.
