Navel Seakamela: Who We Should Not Be

Completed while participating in the gallery’s GUILD Residency, Navel Seakamela’s latest series of large-scale paintings reflects on the role of leisure in everyday life and depicts people in moments of quietude, repose, and vulnerability within a single clean frame. Whether bathed in golden light or swathed by lazily drooping palm fronds, each of Seakamela’s subjects are at peace with themselves and lean into the lightness of being.
