Bernard Perlin’s Orthodox Boys shows two Jewish boys furtively sharing Hebrew text against a hostile backdrop of urban graffiti. This stark and penetrating painting from 1948 conveys a powerful sense of their relationship and also their cultural isolation. In richly diverse, often humorous and thought provoking paintings, The Singh Twins explore complex interwoven relationships between western and eastern cultural experiences and aesthetics. The artist Njideka Akunyili addresses her relationships with both Nigerian and Western culture. As a Nigerian woman living in the United States with an American husband, her paintings examine her sense of existing in a cultural ‘no man’s land’ between conflicting identities. Born in Tibet but now living in London, the artist Gonkar Gyatso describes himself as ‘emotionally and ethnically Tibetan, but socially and politically British’. His work also comments on relations between different cultural heritages and the ways in which ‘people, ideas and things coexist and sometimes clash’.
