I first stumbled across the fascinating collages of this Nairobi-born New York artist in the cyber void. The works barked out, as though executed in rhythmic sequences, but each with its own distinct momentum. Lyric and ravishing, these pointed images offer a dense package of erotic fury and writhing sensual form; they also vigorously represent. Mutu makes work that embodies those qualities that I love. She is a torch singer of the highest order.
