Artist highlight: Sokari Douglas Camp.

Spotting work done by Nigerian master sculpture Sokari Douglas Camp (CBE) isn’t a hard task. Her carefully constructed, highly detailed and thought provoking life-size structures bear a distinct and unique signature informed by a mixture of her Kalabari heritage and a broader national identity, as she invokes Kalabari masquerades and artistic traditions, as well as the experiences of Nigerians both at home and in the diaspora.

The Fascinating Neuroscience Of Color
Neuroscientist Bevil Conway believes scientists can learn a lot from examining the strategies artists use to clarify color. “The best access we have of what color is and what it does to us is by studying the work of people who have studied it obsessively. Matisse is one of those people,” he says. “I think it’s extremely valuable, and there’s been very limited work treating that corpus as the sort of scientific evidence that it will turn out to be.”
