Solo Exhibition by Elias Mung’ora, Sept. 26 – Oct. 18 2020 @ One Off Contemporary


Exhibition Opening: Saturday, September 26 2020
Time: 10am to 4pm
Venue: One Off Contemporary Art Gallery

Until October 18, 2020 (Gallery Open Tuesday through Sunday)

About
One Off Gallery is delighted to host a solo exhibition for Elias Mung’ora. The show comprises vintage Mung’ora acrylic on canvas works; urban life at its most intense, huddles of people populate the surfaces, whispering, conspiring and consoling. Times are tough and Mung’ora paints the front line of economic hardship but also portrays our famous Kenyan resilience and ingenuity.

These people are survivors, brilliantly observed and represented in acrylic on canvas by Mung’ora.

Please note that masks are mandatory around the gallery.

Exhibition: Conversation in Silence by James Mbuthia, May 5-22 2018 @ One Off Contemporary

Opening: May 5, 2018
Venue: One Off Contemporary
Time: noon – 5 pm

Until May 22, 2018

“Conversation in Silence” at One Off features new works made over the last one year and is a continuation of the artist’s exploration of telling stories using imagery generated from sounds and using nature as his point of departure in his art making. He says it is a culmination of paintings that have been produced as a result of him sitting, observing, enjoying and silently communicating with nature.

Exhibition: Divine Discontent by Beatrice Wanjiku, Apr. 30 – May 24 2016 @ One Off Contemporary Art Gallery

Opening/Private View: April 30, 2016
Venue: One Off Contemporary Art Gallery

Until: May 24, 2016

About
People believe in certain manners, predetermined conduct often according to pre-described behavioural norms of society. Anything counter to this is normally punished whereas “normalcy” is encouraged and rewarded.

In this series the straitjacket is a metaphor that explores boundaries, the idea of boundaries (social and self) and an imposed system of thought. The works delve into how we are anchored by social conditioning and expectation, always bound at the expense of what we desire. In this series the body of work is a reflection of the outward expression of our inner and intimate existence. The figures in these works explore the duality of the state of being and the natural intrinsic state of fulfilment and happiness.
