Landscapes of the Soul presents works that span over two decades of Jerry Buhari’s artistic career, and follows a loose chronological order from 1993 to the present. Drawing from his experiences, as well as the social and political issues in the society, Jerry Buhari continues to examine how man relates to the earth and references the consequences of this relationship on the environment.
Over the years, we have been through a series of events and experiences that calls for self-reflection and re-evaluation of our political structures and societal norms as a nation. More so, the momentous times that we are in require an all-pervasive understanding of how we have contributed to the issues that we face
Landscapes of the Soul is an invitation to such a heart-to-heart dialogue. The presented body of works in this exhibition are created for such a time like this.
