Ade Adesina, Interception. stone lighography, 2024

INTERSECTION combines objects, places and scenes from Ade Adesina’s African roots, British culture, and encounters whilst travelling into visually captivating landscapes. This exhibition explores new processes for the artist, experimenting with screenprint and lithograph alongside relief printing and sculptural installations. The artist is also embracing colour on a large scale for the first time but remains engaged in addressing current affairs. This exhibition marks a journey of artistic exploration, with references to cultural narratives within a socio-political context.
