  • Diffusion
  • Chibuike Uzoma Promise Onali

  • March 30 - May 17, 2019

  • Temple Muse


  • DIFFUSION takes a critical look at the evolution of consciousness and how our individual and communal identity is affected by history and socio-cultural evolution. Both artists are from Nigeria and explore these fundamental questions from different ends of the artistic spectrum, employing diverse painting techniques and use of materials.

    Onali and Uzoma question our collective journey of emotional, spiritual and physical diffusion through time and space. Onali's remarkable linear style and experimentation with wood, paper, fiber, metal, wire, fabrics, polystyrene and paint on canvas are a striking counterpoint to Uzoma's deft, almost irreverent slashes and splashes of color creating abstract scenes and portraits heavy with sub-text reflecting complex emotional mindscapes.
