The Games of Love, come and go
Paintings by Ndaté Sylla

October 27 to December 6, 2015

Exhibit Catalogue

A series of 12 mixed media paintings on jute (the backs of recycled carpets).
I was at the public garbage dump in Yverdon-les-Bains (Switzerland) to deposit household waste with my ex-girlfriend when I saw an old dirty and smelly roll of carpet. When I saw that the back of the carpet was actually lined with burlap cloth, I thought the carpets would be perfect for painting. This series of paintings illustrates part of our love and passion story.

As a French and Senegalese citizen, I graduated from Dakar National Fine Arts School, in Senegal. I have lived and worked in 4 different countries, on 3 continents (Canada, France, Switzerland and Senegal). I have now been living in Kingston for 11 months with my son Thierno and my dear wife Mélanie, to whom I dedicate this work.

2005 Painting exhibition at Café Luna, Lausanne, Switzerland
2004-2005 Painting and sculpture exhibition at Gallery Nelly l’Eplattenier in Lausanne, Switzerland
