Sikelela Owen @ James Freeman Gallery

9 July 2020 - 1 August 2020

This show, Together, presents a group of Sikelela Owen’s most recent paintings following her residency at the British School at Rome.

Sikelela paints the people that give her a sense of belonging, ranging from family and friends to other Londoners in her community. It is a human landscape, the kind that is reproduced endlessly online to the point that such images start to lose their value. In this era of digital excess, Sikelela uses painting to capture something that is more meaningful and lasting, and to lend a sense of substance to the imagery of others.
