Sekela Khuluma

Edmond, Terry
Terry Edmond was born in Chelmsford, Essex and studied at Wolverhampton Polytechnic and The Slade School of Art. He has exhibited widely within the United Kingdom and taught at a variety of arts institutions, holding the position of Programme Adviser for Fine Art at The University of Reading. As with other works by Edmond, 'Sekela Khuluma' is a playful juxtaposition of patterns, shapes and contrasting colours. This work shares its name with a 1973 song by saxophonist and composer Dudu Pukwana who blended jazz solos and kwela rhythms and could possibly have influenced this piece as represented by the colours, movement and shapes seen in this work.
