We look forward to seeing you at the foundation this weekend, as Nola Ayoola will be taking us through a journey of dismantling, intertwining and overlapping of subjects, stories and mediums triggered by her synesthesia. During the Open Studio, visitors get to view and interact with the Nola Ayoola and her works. Nola Ayoola will also give a short presentation about her practice, experience, and residency at the Foundation.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
Nola Ayoola (b1992) is a multidisciplinary artist from Nigeria. Her  works are a visual diary which  express a language and translation of being. Through portraiture, woven and cut out abstract compositions, they observe her heritage and its profound impact on her identity by storytelling through the varying lenses in which she sees, imagines and feels.

Ayoola sees her works as  re-imagined traditional narratives and folklores passed on from generations. They challenge/ celebrate representation, shared narratives and experiences. She  nurtures themes of social constructs of gender, socio – economic transgressions,  human interaction with environments,  Yoruba tradition, spirituality, identity and auras.

Her  works  are both theoretically and physically layered as a core voice, – a study of dismantling, intertwining and overlapping of subjects, stories and mediums triggered by her synesthesia. Through the combination of singular components, she is particularly interested in highlighting visualized responses to interconnection.  Nola pays tribute to traditional African craftsmanship practices with a deep sense of consciousness of Yoruba identity, inspired by her beloved hometown. These include – hand dyed indigo to carved block printing and weaving. The process of hand printing patterns as backgrounds  (an ode to Yoruba carving techniques and traditional Adire textiles) holds equal importance to the subjects.
