Artist statement

  1. 1. Artist Statement Yewande Okuleye
  2. 2. • My work as an Artist is situated within the framework of interrogating the gaps within the knowledge systems of language, history and science.
  3. 3. • Within this context, my art seeks to excavate tensions, contradictions and conflicts. • My intention as an artist is to plant the seed of a visual idea; a playful tease with the real, the constructed and the imaginary.
  4. 4. • What happens when these boundaries intersect and blur? • What does this new knowledge suggest? • How does it challenge the prevalent constructed dichotomies?
  5. 5. • Digital photography, drawing, and text are the preferred investigative tools in my image making strategy. • This mixed media approach enables a dialogue between the different media to ensue.
  6. 6. • I am looking for a spontaneous fusion between the visible and invisible aspects of the materiality of different processes. • This process allows the work to embed the cognitive, kinaesthetic & temporal qualities of image making.
