    'The Gift of Fellowship', Ndidi Emefiele

    13 september - 9 december

Whereas the artist’s previous exhibition was dedicated and inspired by the tragic loss of Emefiele’s beloved sister, her new show, dedicated to the importance of fellowship, represents the slow process of healing and how one goes about dealing with memory and pain. The artist uses ‘fellowship’ in its widest sense; the importance of friends,relationships and spaces and above all, ‘fellowship with self’.have helped her navigate the very profound mourning period which she went through and is still going through. The artist sees this gift of fellowship as being a very spiritual embrace and this has certainly helped her. These paintings, as she explains it, ‘are seeking to reconcile the familiar and the unknown where I paint it just as I imagine it from the clues I get when dreaming about my sister’.
