Thulani Earnshaw is an artist. A very serious artist. He creates work that comments on the generalized specificity of a technological and sexualized society. The particularity of
his work rests on the notion of touch, taste, smell, and the combination of color, line, & form. The artists use of material has become like an extension of the body, no different to
 clothe or hair. Installation is a highly contemporary & cutting edge art form that touches on the immediacy of life. Similar to the simplicity of a painting, describing how light hits an
 object.

"I, as an artist, have no reason to state my International Origin any more. I have no reason to state my nationality any more."

"Globalization of art has created a vacuum of anti-aesthetic art that deals with creating rituals of dis-affirmation. For me to say that I am international is the same as saying that I would like  to set up a new sweat shop in a new country." - Thulani Earnshaw

This sentiment appears to be different today, but it is no different than what has occurred for  the last 8 thousand years.
