Cross-section of Joy Labinjo’s (@joylabinjo) ‘Recollections’ show on display at Tiwani Contemporary (@tiwani_contemporary). Joy Labinjo’s large-scale paintings depict intimate, contemporary scenes of family life: a group of people casually lying down on a sofa and chatting after a family gathering, a child and his grand-mother posing together in front of the camera, or stolen moments before the official wedding portrait. Her work expands on her British-Nigerian heritage and explores the relationship between belonging, identity and culture. (via tiwani.co.uk)
