Ro2 Art Gallery presents Olaniyi R. Akindiya: "Ojuse-Duty" opening reception
Ro2 Art will present "Ojuse-Duty," a solo exhibition featuring new works by artist Olaniyi R. Akindiya (Akirash). Akirash's weaved photographs demonstrate the composite nature and fragility of memories. The photos contrast both monochromatic and colored perspectives. From frayed threads and captivating colors, to the meditative mix of animation and gray scale, the memories captured reveal their subjectivity and elasticity. Akirash's work collectively reflects on rural versus urban life in an intricate and visceral collage of recognizable figures incorporating multiple narratives. Through his work Akirash brings to light the ephemeral nature of memories.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through May 11.
