About
Richard Kimathi along with four other Kenyans are representing their country at the Venice Biennale. One Off Gallery is enormously proud to host a show of Richard’s latest work in Kenya from 24th June, titled ‘On the outside looking in’. Always experimenting and pushing the envelope, in this series Kimathi uses metal as his painting surface. And as ever, he explores the emotionally charged political climate surrounding us.

One Off is proud to host ‘painted faces’, a long awaited exhibition by Allan Githuka. A self-taught career artist, Githuka presents a series exploring communication between people through facial expression. The beautiful paintings are an excellent illustration of the artist’s mantra of ‘don’t ever fear the use of colour’!

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.
