Strips and weaves (lightbox series)

Horizontal stratifications of vibrant colours make up Strips and Weaves. Although the form of “Strips and Weaves” is suggestive of the hard-edge works produced by post painterly abstraction practitioners of the 60s, it is distinctly Nigerian in its intention, source reference and approach. The source reference for Strips and Weaves is the traditional Nigerian fabric; “Aso Oke”. The stratification motif of the fabric has been transformed into an expressive art form. Simulating the three traditional dyes used to create this cloth; Alaari (a rich red color), Sanyan (a sepia brown color) and Etu (a dark blue color); these source colours have been combined and blended to create a distinct derivative spectrum of innumerable colors. This unique spectrum delivers the array of intense, vibrant and energetic colour hues used in the series.
