Dennis Osadebe is a Nigerian mixed-media artist best known for his vibrant post-pop style. Osadebe’s style is a unique blend of digital processes which he uses to create canvases that are subsequently layered with acrylic paint. With his characteristic use of flattened planes and bold colours, the artist creates what he refers to as a “NEO” visual style, one that is “modern, bright, expressive and provocative”
Margaret Ann Withers
Margaret Ann Withers’ paintings depict the emotional landscape of my childhood as she remembers it-a blur of color and movement flashing by the static iconography of her past- of tiny company houses where the roughnecks lived and old-style telephone poles. The tiny homes in my paintings have a simplicity that obscures the complex and uniquely personal relationship that each viewer has to an idea of home and the telephone poles are a universal and quickly fading icon of communication that denote emotional connection, formality, privacy, disconnection and alienation.
Vicky Barranguet’s work moves in different directions, approaching a variety of situations and dynamics. Embodied by an empirical investigation of the pictorial structure, where processes departing from spontaneous gestures evolve into elaborate and complex systems where improvisation, organization of form and space, and attention to detail are at its core. There is a consistency throughout the years within her work diversity, perceived and recognized by others as Barranguet’s signature.
