① Artwork:

Sunset Duet II

This watercolor is a figure study in warm shades of orange, red and pink. This small-scale composition is composed of simplified forms that emphasize relationships between color and shape. While the artist often works on paper to create studies for large-scale oil canvas paintings, this watercolor and ink image is fully realized in its vibrant immediacy and compositional fluidity. This work is part of a series that loosely portrays pairs of androgynous figures dancing afloat in fields of patterned color.

③ Artist:

Tunji Adeniyi-Jones

Tunji Adeniyi-Jones creates bold oil paintings where androgynous figures and animals, stand-ins for ancestors and deities, dance in richly patterned floral backgrounds. His works grapple with the ancient history of West Africa and its mythology through a diasporic lens, creating a space where multiple identities bloom.
