Abi Ola The Masked Dancer (2023) Oil, acrylic and fabrics on canvas

Artwork Description

Size: 100 x 100 cm

In this work, two enigmatic figures take center stage against a dynamic, swirling backdrop. They exude a mysterious aura, akin to masked performers, with postures suggesting an entrancing dance in progress.

Inspired by a fusion of influences including the artist’s mother’s dresses and William Morris designs, the chaotic patterns intertwine elegantly. Dutch wax textiles overlay these intricate patterns, skillfully blending nostalgia, historical aesthetics, and cultural touchpoints.

The work invites viewers to contemplate the interplay of identity, movement, and the resonances of textile artistry.
