Gerald Chukwuma - Homeostasis
Elongated figures, animals, swirling symbols and geometric patterns combine to create a vivid series of textured maps that are chiselled, burnt and painted on to panels of wood. Nigerian artist Gerald Chukwuma’s latest body of work was born out of a process of personal transformation and deep research into art therapy.
As such, Homeostasis, his latest solo exhibition at Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery’s London Bridge space, marks an important turning point in his practice, not just stylistically but philosophically. Defined by a pared-back, largely monochromatic palette and flowing, interconnected motifs, these new works are the result of the artist’s attempts to find an inner sense of peace and to explore art’s ability to heal.
