Naunces in a Narrow Spectrum Version 2.5

Through detailed drawings, Peter Mammes depicts the uncomfortable and arbitrary. In his latest body of work, he posits himself within the post-colonial debate around representation. He says, “history is presented as simple grand narratives and those narratives shape our current political and social conceptions. Through my work I attempt to challenge those narratives.” Viewing times vary. See Facebook for more.
