Hooks-Epstein Galleries will present "WANTING," a solo show from Nigerian-born artist Kingsley Onyeiwu.

The artwork of Kingsley Onyeiwu embodies a blend of traditional and contemporary aesthetics. In his latest body of work, Onyeiwu delves further into the subject of his figures and explores an array of thoughts channeled through works ranging from fashionable portraiture to evocative abstraction. The use of color in certain pieces serves as a symbol of the changes and feelings that are invoked in relation to the passage of time.

"WANTING" draws inspiration from a wave of events and situations that challenge, if not alter, the viewer’s understanding of societal perceptions. Onyeiwu not only explores certain moments and eras throughout the course of history with his pieces, but he also celebrates his cultural background and the narrative of the African diaspora. Echoes of pride, memories, otherworldliness, and confrontation reverberate from the theme of his works.

For safety concerns, all guests are required to wear a face mask upon entry at all times inside the gallery
