2-TIMES  Art 
Serge Alain Nitegeka,
Personal Effects
in Black

@ Marianne
Boesky Gallery

A dynamic interplay 
between depth and 
flatness, inviting the 
viewer to step into 
the frame only to 
block the seeming 
point of entry.” 

The exhibition:
Is the Johannesburg-
based artist's third
solo with Marianne
Boesky in New York,
presented across both
of the gallery’s Chelsea
locations; featuring a
new body of works 
created in 2017 that
continues Nitegeka’s
examinations of color,
form, and space —
with his new paintings
the artist moves further
into abstraction,
focusing in particular
on the effects of
the color black. 

Black is brute 
darkness. An intangible 
destructive mass that 
is dense and viscous, 
weighing me down 
deep into silence. 
It puts me into a 
state of overwhelming 
appreciation and 
meditation — a 
space of unknown 
emptiness & depth.”
