Hooks-Epstein Galleries presents Kingsley Onyeiwu: "Shadows of Time" opening reception
In "Shadows of Time," Kingsley Onyeiwu’s artwork embodies a blend of traditional and contemporary aesthetics. His admiration of figurative works of art, as well as a deep appreciation for the techniques of the old masters, is projected into a modernist’s vision and recreation - centered on the subject of the African diaspora.
In this respect, Onyeiwu not only explores certain moments and eras throughout the course of history with his drawings and paintings, but he also celebrates his cultural background and the narrative of the African diaspora. Echoes of pride, memories, otherworldliness, and confrontation exude from the theme of his works.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until March 30.
