Personal beauty, or Poise


The Washerwoman, 48″x48″, mixed media, 02/2016

Long ago in university I realized that individuality is not to be sacrificed for the applause of the crowd. That is the training and calling of the artist, to give a personalized take on matters. We must say what we believe, and stick to it. It’s also professional integrity.In my work, it started with questioning the notion of beauty. Beauty is not static. It differs among people and cultures. So Beauty moves like a flowing river, with course changing as things come at its path-time rocks, hills, valleys, trees. Beauty of character, though, remains constant, compartmentalized. We say, ‘ Agwa by Nma nwanyi'( Good virtues are a woman’s beauty) she wears it on her.
