Description:
Dominique Zinkpe (Beninese, born 1969) Untitled signed 'ZINKPE' (lower right) acrylic on canvas 85 x 100cm (33 7/16 x 39 3/8in). Footnotes Provenance Acquired directly from the artist. A private collection. Dominique Zinkpè was born in 1969 in Cotonou. Benin's history, its pre-colonial greatness and the impact of subsequent French rule, is embedded in his work. His visual language draws inspiration from Catholicism, Animism and indigenous traditions - celebrating the nation's rich diversity, but also highlighting the unresolved tensions. The artist's recent paintings depict "a world of ghosts". His figures are a hybrid of human, animal and mythical beast. It is often unclear whether they are among the living or the dead. Their maniacal dance evoke traditional Beninese rituals. Pregnant and fertile women occur frequently, through which the artist explores themes of desire, reproduction, abortion or expectancy. Zinkpè was awarded the Prix Jeune Talent Africain (Young African Talent) Award at the Grapholie in Abidjan in 1993. In 2002 he received the West African Economic and Monetory Union (UEMOA) Prize at the Dakar Biennale.

Description:
Dominique Zinkpè MURMURES II B. 1969 signed and dated2010(lower right) mixed media on canvas 150 by 180cm., 59 by 71in. Executed in 2010 Acquired directly from the artist by the present owner in 2010 Brussels, Fine Art Studio, Metamorphoses, 2011, illustrated in the catalogue p. 101 Roger-Pierre Turine, Les Destins de Zinkpè, Paris, 2013,illustrated p. 33 The present work is exemplary of Zinkpè signature style. Intrigued by the notion of animism, the belief that all things are alive, Zinkpè\’\’\’\’s figures present themselves as unfamiliar beings that appear to effortlessly move within, and even beyond, the confines of the canvas. Exhibiting a surrealist quality, Zinkpè works are not grounded in rationality; instead, they seem to tap into the ethereal, the unexplained and even elements of voodoo. Murmures II highlights the artist\’\’\’\’s mastery of colour as layers of black, white, red, blue and yellow effortlessly meld together within this dynamic composition, pulling viewers into a world of ritualism and magic. Works such as this one by Zinkpè are simultaneously unsettling as well as deeply intriguing. The artist\’\’\’\’s works explore a variety of themes including mysticism, religion and cultural conflict within his home country of Benin
