Nengi Omuku: As Water Never Touched
December 9, 2023 - January 27, 2024
Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery:
2414 Florida Avenue
West Palm Beach, FL

The artist’s maze-like exhibition comes to life at the West Palm Beach gallery, where her painted Sanyan canvases bring political paintings, landscapes, and portraiture together with a dreamlike color palette. Fragmented scenes, such as a hidden embrace, a tangle of limbs in a portrait, or a crowded, uproarious gathering, connect to a prevailing sense of uncertainty: within the perception of self, the global political climate, and even the environment each canvas depicts. Both Omuku and the gallery liken the works to a collection of half-finished sentences, encapsulating their sense of precarity.
