The Mosaic Project 2014
The Mosaic Project artists for 2014 are Toyin Odutola and Lydia Panas, exhibition continues through November 15, 2014
Toyin Odutola creates richly layered drawings of her family, friends and herself, often experimenting with non-traditional materials such as black and gold sharpie markers. Her recent works are larger in scale and are made with charcoal and pastel on paper. She invented a way of layering and making marks which is uniquely her own and was designed to explore the surface of skin, specifically black skin. This concentrated study has served Odutola well and has allowed her to contribute to the current cultural and political conversation on black identity.
Lydia Panas‘ photographs from her Mark of Abel series are larger than life and deeply emotive portraits of family relationships. Shot with 4 x 5 inch film, the large scale negatives provide rich detail, contributing to the narrative and tone of the images. The negatives are scanned and final photographs are digital chromogenic prints.
