Quintessence Lagos is pleased to announce “In No Particular Order” a body of work spanning four years by Alimi Adewale at Quintessence storefront. The paintings and sculptures on display are works made between 2012-2016 varying in subject matter and media, drawing, abstraction and representational works contrasting landscapes of unadulterated nature with those showing evidence of human interruption all juxtaposed on a wall painted Bermuda Pink.
The focus of this exhibition is to look for order in randomness, “In No Particular Order” installation may at first appear haphazard but is a form of controlled expression, which challenges the viewer in accepting the change of focus from technical master-ship to more intellectual levels of reception and has to deal with ambiguous and inconsistent situations which is one of the key features of contemporary art.

Her choice unbeknownst to her makes her the target of enemies willing to kidnap or kill her. (more…)
Excellently written by Vivian O. Ikem. This book joins works such as Joanna Swinney’s Dark Woods: A Young Woman’s Journey out of Depression as an insightful examination into one of the world’s most debilitating diseases—while offering readers hope for recovery.
Depression is not sadness, weakness, failed faith, black magic or a white man disease. It can just about happen to anyone, and can also be overcome. Don’t suffer in silence. Take action now!
The World Health Organization estimates that depression will be the second leading cause of death and disability by 2020. Yet several remain ignorant of depression and many suffer from limited access to mental health resources.
