The Hepworth Wakefield will present an exhibition of new work by British artist Jadé Fadojutimi (b. 1993).
Fadojutimi’s large-scale paintings combine abstract and figurative elements in compositions that have intense graphic energy. At the heart of Fadojutimi’s work is an introspective mining of facets of her own identity and the social and cultural environments that shape them. Her paintings are typically made in bursts of energetic mark-making. While some are worked on over time, others are completed in a single sitting, and each evoke a memory or experience. Writing is also central to her creative practice and she expresses herself in words as readily as she does with paint, with the diaristic nature of her writing finding abstract expression in her canvases.
From Friday 21 May 2021, the gallery, shop and café will be open Wednesday – Sunday, 10am – 4pm (last entry 3.30pm). The Hepworth Wakefield Garden continues to be open daily. Our new garden café is open daily 11am – 3pm.
