Room in my House II – Kemi Onabule, Wimbledon College of Arts
Oil on Board / 52 x 68.5cm
Within my paintings I draw attention to the overlooked and underwhelming environments of daily life. The objects, and occasionally the people, that inhabit my paintings can be obscured views, off balance, off centre, not quite right. The absence of a human presence within domestic interiors immediately raises questions. What has happened here? Who lives here? Where are they now? By depopulating these spaces the viewer is implicated into the paintings and the works take on a set-like quality.
