This is the second part of Green Cardamom's, retrospective in four takes on the works of seminal artist Anwar Jalal Shemza. Guest curator for this exhibition, Rachel Garfield, an artist and lecturer at Goldsmiths University, views the works of Shemza through the lens of landscape. Shemza moved to the UK in the 1950s, where he lived till his death in 1985. Many of Shemza's British contemporaries in the 1960s were, like him working with landscape but with far greater recognition. Shemza's works of that time do not fit into the traditional pastoral English model, typical of that time and genre, yet Garfield contends that viewing his practice through the formal device of landscape offers new ways to engage with his practice.
