The first three drawings in the series They Comet Again by Kemang Wa Lehulere were exhibited on his solo show Here I Am, A Concrete Man Throwing Himself into Abstraction. In that exhibition the artist continued "his questioning of historical narratives" while "exploring new formal possibilities"1 that included frenetic drawings that explored both pattern and movement in repetitive mark making.
