Gallery Statement

In the contemporary art scene, styles may seem to be in the spotlight, however the need to ask certain questions like ‘is there a narrative or story to the work? ‘Does the work communicate an idea or feeling? ‘Is there an underline theme to the work? ‘Does the work carves its unique interpretation? Are mostly what goes through the mind of a proper art audience, and most importantly what an artist should embed in every art piece.

These features, this understanding is what Samuel Tete-Katchan and Aina Felix infuse in their works.

Alexis Galleries is always pleased to invite such masterminds to her art space. The gallery recognizes the uniqueness in style and rendition of ideas by these artists, hence the birth of ‘colours and cubes’.

‘Cubes’ is coined from Tete’s rendition of his figures which clearly has its own narrative. Samuel Tete- Katchan paint to celebrate geometrical forms and colours. Although the squares look like they do not have the right angles and same sizes, but you can still see the images so clearly. Samuel celebrate geometrical forms and colours. He says ‘though we may not come from the same social and cultural background, we are called to make this place a better place for all.

‘Colours’ however is peculiar to Aina Felix art style, judging by his bold application of vibrant colours and textured surface that gives a special uniqueness to his rendition. Aina Felix is an impressionist painter who has been able to create and achieve his own trend and style of mixed media with colourful impasto.

We are pleased to also announce that the gallery will be partnering with Sickle Cell Foundation Nigeria, the Sickle Cell Foundation Nigeria is a non-governmental and non –profit making organization dedicated to the proper care and control of sickle cell disorder in Nigeria, by donating part of the exhibition proceeds to its course.

As you come view the show, explore, stretch your imagination, enjoy!
