Re: Art of New Sudan- A visual Protest--Dr. Khalid Kodi (London) (Re: Kostawi)

    Khalid Kodi

    Khalid Kodi is a Boston-based Sudanese painter, illustrator and a graphic designer whose works have graced magazines and newspapers in Sudan, the Arab Gulf States and the United States. Kodi is representative of a younger generation of Sudanese artists whose work continue to broaden the scope of the Sudanese contemporary art movement while enriching and bringing a fresh perspective to the international art scene.

    The major corpus of Kodi's works, as he himself asserts, are explorations of his artistic legacy, cultural heritage and oral traditions as a Sudanese. Executed in an abstract expressionist style, his work represent an infusion of western modernist conventions and the visual vocabulary of colors, symbols and calligraphic motifs developed by the pioneers of the Sudanese modern art movement known in African art history texts as the "Khartoum School." Like other Sudanese artists, Kodi's works are full of multiple references which range from the ancient Nubian architectural designs, calligraphic motifs, urban and rural Sudanese landscape, to African mask-like figure.

    Kodi is also a musician who tries his hand at the Lute, an instrument which he often plays with grace at his openings. This is a reflection of his rich heritage and wealth of experience gained from growing up in Sudan and later strengthened by working and living abroad. He was born in 1962 into a family of prominent musicians and artists in the city of Wad Madani, the capital of the Gazira province in Sudan. Growing up in such an environment made it was natural for Kodi to decide at an early age upon a career as an artist and to study painting at the Khartoum College of Fine and Applied Art where he graduated with BFA in 1987. After a short period of travel, explorations and work in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, Kodi migrated to the United States in the early 1990 and continued his art studies and earning a MFA in painting from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, Mass. Since then he continues to live in Boston where he now teaches at the Boston College's Department of Fine Art.

    The influences in Kodi's work, as he asserts, come from wherever he can see and observe. His work brings desperate elements together, at the same time, one can easily see and sense his magical vision which gives the work a distinct style characterized by dream-like world of colors, forms and textures. Of his work, Kodi observes, "my visions begin and ends in magical realism." Space for him is where the miracles of nature have materialized and from which he draws his visions. An example of his creative synthesis, are the works included in his early solo exhibition at the National Museum of Afro-American Artists in Boston in 1992 entitled the Nubian Legacy in Contemporary Art . Dedicated to exploration of his Nubian heritage, the exhibition included a group of mixed media paintings with heavily textured surfaces created by innovative use of collages of paints, paper, built up areas of modeling compounds and sands.

    The series of drawing entitled Sheba demonstrates Kodi's preoccupation with space in formal, psychic and spiritual senses. Using a linear perspective, these drawings show Sudanese town spaces with intricate architectural and masonry details. Though these drawings are articulated in a descriptive physical manner, they also convey those memories which haunt the imagination of a child listening to old stories of times bygone. In contrast to this, the space in the painting entitled the Queen of Sheba, turns into a spiritual and fantastic with objects and human figures floating in a Chagall's like manner and where things merge and move about without the limitation and fixity of the physical space. Kodi continued to explore the magical world of ancient stories in his latest series of works entitled A Thousand and One Nights exhibited at the Art Gallery of Northeastern University in Boston in May 1996. The paintings included in this exhibition represented his continued spiritual interest in old stories with images gleaned down from the well known tales invoking the magical atmosphere of the Arabo-Persian medieval world. More recently, Kodi started to explore the genre of conceptual art in a series of installation dedicated to Sudanese and African refugees and which combine paintings, sculpture, music and live performance. This seems to usher a new direction in Kodi's artistic career, clearly influenced by recent trends in the international art world with which he keeps close pace.
