Exhibition: Silent Conversation By Longinos Nagila, Nov. 25-28 2014 @ Italian Institute of Culture – Westlands

Opening: November 25, 2014 at 7:00pm
Venue: Italian Institute of Culture, Westlands

My work embodies my interest in socio-economic situations in life, while at the same time trying to provoke thoughts that are driven towards the judgment of these situations. I consider my paintings as a platform for conversation from within an individual or between two or more people. My main subject is human, with a kin interest in their emotions as expressed in their eyes.

My sources of Inspiration are endless. I am deeply interested in children and women as I see them both as vessels and sources of life. I have a keen interest on world religions and arts. I take my time to look and try to understand the different visual languages employed by artists from different parts of the world

SILENT CONVERSATION is a collection of portrait paintings of women trying to create a dialogue between the viewer and the ‘paintings’, the paintings, I consider them thought provoking and commands attention.

Though not quite detailed, the portraits silently holds the attention of the viewer. It is said that eyes are the windows to the soul, the main outstanding feature of the portraits is the eyes, they are dark and looks directly to the eyes of the viewer, this creates an emotional disturbance.

The exhibition interrogates the relationship between the artist, the art and the viewer, between what the society considers as beauty and ugly, sad and happy, stereotypes and judgment.

The exhibition will feature 25 portraits of different sizes all produced in 2014.
