Portraits of the Orisa: Nigeria Series re-imagines artists and members of the Yoruba religious community as the Orisa and other figures central to the Yoruba spiritual and philosophical tradition. The series explores divinity, spirituality and tradition by combining traditional and contemporary Yoruba weaving, carving, bead -working and "Adire" resist dyeing arts with western painting techniques. The work is the result of a nine month artist residency in collaboration with   Arts Connect International  and  artists at the Nike centers for art and culture in Osogbo, Lagos and Ogidi-Ijumu.
