Alabama-based artist, Toyin Odutola is currently enjoying her second show at the Jack Shainman Gallery located in New York City.
“My Country Has No Name is an exhibition of pen ink drawings on paper, metallic marker drawings, ink on black board and new lithographs.Together, the range of works represent Odutola’s practice which is grounded in an obsessively fine and meticulous application of line that has become the specified visual language through which she explores the human form as a landscape. My Country Has No Name is an exploration of identity rooted in the friction created by hyphenated nationalities and a study into what comes from a reconciliation of seemingly distant and divergent cultural homes to form a new multilayered reality.”
My Country Has No Name, takes on race, nationhood and identity through the fine tip of a ballpoint pen.
