My style of work is dynamic, focusing on giving voice to those who are often unheard, mostly the vulnerable women and children. My artwork evokes emotions that have been drawn from my experiences as well my Igbo culture.
When I pick up my board, nails, hammer and threads to string, am well aware that my ideas, emotions, feelings and concepts formed from experience will engage a lot of mind trying to make meaning out of life. The thread I often used is timeless with an interwoven motion binding viewers to the past and present. My creation also deals on thoughts and connections using string to connect lines across time and space.
My recent work “Becoming“ depicts my personal experience in search of my dream and fulfilment in life. I used facial expressions to show through my own life’s experience, that fulfilment and self realisation is possible. And so we are not left helpless at the mercy of our difficulties and limitations which leads to depression and sometimes suicide. There is hope we derive from our resolve on never giving up. Also, I’m currently exploring a new medium of installation with strings and nails, highlighting the contemporary issues of climate change among the vulnerable groups especially in Lagos Nigeria were I live andwork.
Art remains the only way through which I share my thoughts and ideas with the aim to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.
