Overview

Now on view online at Terra Kulture gallery, ‘Color in Light’, a group exhibition that features art photographs, film, video works, and paintings by five contemporary visual artists, Chigozie Obi, Apreel Geek, Ua.x Seyi, Osagie, and Chukwuka Nwobi. ... Curated by Tife Adedeji, Color in Light wanders through moods, stories, and temperaments. Chigozie Obi, a multifaceted artist, who experiments with as many mediums and materials she takes or leaves to create her works. She sets out her canvas to be the light source her high-key watercolor paintings reflect through and uses Chiaroscuro to create warm intimate monochromatic oil paintings. Ua.x Seyi reveals the spirits of stories in the shadows that extend through his hard-natural lit tableaus and films. Apreel Geek, an artist, photographer and illustrator presents his schmaltzy delusive portraits and landscapes, and for those who get a close look, Easter eggs hidden around the paintings. In a world that may seem slight to some, Osagie envisions a discernible element worth capturing in whatever is in sight. He presents sets of abstract photos that give an eyeful of line, shape, color, form and texture, to delude real touch in seemingly slight objects. Chukwuka Nwobi, born and raised in Lagos, experiments with light and color in his collection for this exhibition which he captured over the years to show nuances of an angel through light, color and shadow.
