Wosene Worke Kosrof
For over twenty-five years, Ethiopian-born artist Wosene Worke Kosrof
has explored the aesthetic potential of language, using the written symbols of his native Amharic as the major compositional element in his work.
In his paintings, the calligraphic forms of Amharic are broken apart, abstracted, and reconfigured to create a new visual language that draws upon the artist's Ethiopian heritage while incorporating his experiences as an expatriate living in the United States.
