Adeshina returns in art of 'Internal Conflicts'

After his last solo titled Void to Form, Ademola Adeshina is back to the exhibition circuit. He is taking his thoughts to Weave&Co Gallery's 'New Possibilities' series art exhibitions, which took off last month. As the third artist in the series, Adeshina brings a new body of work titled Internal Conflicts, showing from April 21 - May, 2018 at Moor House Hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos. The 'New Possibilities', an initiative of curator at Moor House, Ora Ataguba opened with
Chike Onuorah's  Press for Progress and followed by Festus Ogwu's Freedom, both at the same venue.
 Excerpts from his Artits Statemennt: "Beholding his diverse styles of painting, one could deduce that Adeshina's mind is full of unending ideas, and his unquenchable desire to explore these ideas makes him delve into painting in different styles.
 "Beyond abstraction, the artist also explores his interest in figure study. Although tilting towards stylisation due to the minimal detailing on the figure, the work Reflective Mood shows the artists draughtsmanship. The figure is proportional. The work portrays a seated male figure in deep thought, rendered in colourful hues that suggests that the thought is beautiful.
On the whole, Adesina’s meticulousness is evident, with the works showing the quality time spent in thoughtful exploration. Well detailed both in colours and forms, the works evoke an enjoyable tingling sensation in the viewers. The theme of “internal conflict” is appreiated in the multiplicity of styles used by the artist to express his musings and internal beauty".
