Nnena Okore's Of Earth...barks and topography

Artist and art teacher Nnena Okore opened her solo exhibition Of Earth...barks and topography at the Goethe Institut,
Victoria Island on Saturday. It explores the link between the earth and environment, a call to examining how humans treat the environment. Using a technique derived from the traditional papier mache, Okore weaves newspapers, starch, glue, twigs, ropes and clay to create "biomorphic forms" which leave some curiousity in me. I think I need to go back and see again to make better sense of it.

I would love to see this exhibition...I'm fascinated by anything to do with rocks and the earth...especially if it involves artistic interpretation. Thanks for showcasing this artist!

I met a lot of people from Nigeria at an international Rotary meeting in Birmingham, England recently. They all had the most BEAUTIFUL costumes and hats. Please show us some pictures like that. Kind regards from EAGAN daily photo
