    AFTER-IMAGE: DUALISM THROUGH COLOR

    Osi Audu
    Contemporary Artist

    SUNDAY, APRIL 19, 2015, 2 P.M.

    Osi Audu focuses on the Yoruba concept of consciousness, which has both a physical and a spiritual dimension. In referencing the Yoruba sculpture known as ile ori (house of the head) in his works, Osi seeks to articulate this dual nature of being and conscious experience, which he traces to his childhood in Nigeria. He draws from his on-going experimentation with color and invites his audience to participate in a visual interactive experience.
