I talked to Talle Bamazi at “A Point of Departure: paintings by Ron Anderson and a celebration with friends.”
Tell me about the piece.
This is one of Ron Anderson’s students. Her look determined a lot. Through her eyes you can read the soul of this world. Who am I? I love being a black woman.
What is your primary medium?
Oil on linen.
What are the challenges with working with oil and linen?
I have an old school process. I must stretch the linen.
Do you have a favorite piece?
Asking me which is my favorite piece is like asking me which my favorite child. All of them are precious to me.
Is there a common theme in your work?
Yes, the calabash.
