Here as in Heaven
Gallery Rosenfeld is delighted to announce the opening of ‘Here as in Heaven’, the third solo exhibition by the Nigerian artist Ndidi Emefiele. The artist’s latest body of works represents a major shift in her output. Previously, her paintings were suffused with humour notwithstanding the very serious underlying theme relating to women’s strength and absolute self-sufficiency and the stark contrast with how society has generally viewed them.
This new body of works shows the artist less concerned with the outward, and how women are perceived and perceive themselves, but more with the inward. These new works address profound questions of life and death which affect us all. Although the inspiration behind them is highly personal, her ability to touch so many of us derives from their extreme emotivity.
