Port Harcourt, Nigeria, b. 2000
Chiderah Bosah's works are commonly figurative, depicting portraits of people he holds dear to his heart. Bosah’s subdued palette distills the paintings into a direct visual language that emphasizes both the form of the marks and the artist’s method.
Starting with preparatory drawings, he applies his forms to the canvas in a performative take of brush and paint. The subdued palette imbues the paintings with a neutral, objective mood, allowing the viewer to be drawn in to the sheer detail and expressions of his subjects. Their garments are blended into the background, allowing them to become one with their environment whilst simultaneously, their individuality is compromised as they blend into the abyss.
