About "Cornrows in Blue"

The body of works exhibited here form part of a collection, which plays with the sameness and difference that make up portraits. Originally done sporadically in sketchbooks taken from day to day observations.
These works started as an experiment in which I tried to find a figrative relationship between found portraits and expressionistic memories of faces. The works have no beginning or end unto themselves but are a type of stream of consciousness the meanders between figurative abstract and expressionistic styles. Similar to the experience of traveling through the day and recording experiences from moment to moment.
As well as traditional techniques of drawing and paintings I've also made use of concepts like masks and the idea of the land as an experience of the mind rather than only a reality of space and time. Through these various influence an attempt is made to reconcile western art narratives with my cultural ideas of physical space influenced of African psyche. This intern speaks to the ambiguous nature of revealing and hiding of the persona.
