Joy Labinjo @ Tiwani Contemporary
7 November 2018 - 22 December 2018
Joy Labinjo’s large-scale paintings depict intimate, contemporary scenes of family life: a group of people casually lying down on a sofa and chatting after a family gathering, a child and his grand-mother posing together in front of the camera, or stolen moments before the official wedding portrait. Her work expands on her British-Nigerian heritage and explores the relationship between belonging, identity and culture. For her current body of work, Recollections, she used family photographs and found images as a starting point for her paintings.
