The Friday before a long weekend holds so much promise. I’m counting down the minutes until 5:00, so until then I am living for the work of Lakwena Maciver. Her work combines the bold, geometric lines found in Sol LeWitt’s wall drawings with the colorful graphics of 8 bit video games. Lakwena’s energetic paintings are punctuated with woodblock style typography with messages that just make you feel alive. Simply put, her work speaks for itself.
