The Garden of Kongolote, Graphic Novel Project by Alain Corbel
Pinkard Gallery: Bunting Center 1401 W Mt Royal Ave, Baltimore, MD 21217, USA
November 6 – 15, 2015

Faculty member Alain Corbel’s upbringing on a small farm on the north coast of Brittany in France has had a major influence on his personal work. Now, as he travels personally and profes­sionally, he carries with him the sense of place that he developed growing up on the farm. His solo exhibition, The Garden of Kon­golote, shows part of the raw material produced in Maputo, Mozambique, Cape Verde, and São Tomé and Príncipe.

“I sometimes felt as if I was taking handfuls of life from around me to putting it in my drawings,” Corbel said. “In fact, it was there that I realized that I should mix drawings, photos, and text for this graphic novel project.”
