Miabo Enyadike

Proposal:

What is your work about?
My work is primarily centred on humanity and lifestyle, it lays emphasis
on colour and abstract expressions.
It is interpreted, in my own subjective visual impression, leaving no boundaries, except an idea of the subject matter.

The work I’m proposing for the fringe exhibition, is abstract art about faces, hence the title FACES UNKNOWN. It is an abstract rendition of women and men’s faces in silhouettes referencing faces of people we work with, family and people we deal with on a day to day basis or people that attract our attention but are detached from our own reality yet they affect us.. Interacting with people is something I enjoy doing. I try to imagine what their silhouettes in abstract art would look like with reference to their character, demeanor, facial expressions, life situations and occupation.

As an artist, my curiosity to create these Ink based abstract art paintings, stems from a need to see people from another perspective free of facial features and all the seriousness that goes with portraits. This thought has informed the basis for this series.
