Justine Khamara has gained an impressive reputation as an original contemporary artist recognised for her meticulous constructions of two-dimensional photographs into three-dimensional sculptures, often transforming figurative images into complex abstract forms. In Stratum, Khamara works exclusively on paper to present a striking series of drawings almost Op Art in effect. Bands of black and white are repetitiously stacked and interrupted to create penetrating compositions punctuated with collage. Drawing on the body and fragmenting the surface of the paper, Khamara proposes new narratives vis-à-vis what we know and what we see.
