'Materials and Objects'

Materials, techniques and processes are very important in my work. I have been fascinated by the endless possibilities of metal and glass right from my childhood, watching and helping the Artisans with their creations in the rich, colourful and vibrant Yoruba culture.

My work is a collection of sculptural and functional objects, influenced by public and open spaces. I paint or add metal onto my glass pieces to achieve a painterly colour, texture, and contrast.

It's material that gives substance to everything we see and touch. The exploration and experimentation of materials and techniques not only allows me to be creative, but it does also evoke my passion to make. My imagination through the processes results in a story and poetic narration.

I incorporate metal with glass to create an intrigue contrast, colourful, and textured body of work that engage with the audience.
