Studio, Week 6

Museum visit

Njideka Akunyili Crosby, at Victoria Miro was the most inspiring work for me. She incorporates Nigerian culture into her paintings by using patterned fabrics and transferred photographs as the backgrounds. Portraits of intimate censes are painting ontop of the backgrounds, creating a collage effect. I am interested in the emotion Akunyili is able to portray through her art.
