Abe Odedina: You Give Me Fever
Diane Rosenstein Gallery presents You Give Me Fever by British-Nigerian artist Abe Odedina- this is the artist's first solo exhibition in Los Angeles showcasing until 29 October 2022. Predominantly created over the course of this year, this latest collection of paintings is an exploration of the different ways in which desire can be experienced. Although Odedina is a self-described 'folk artist', this collection of works makes reference to renaissance portraiture, as many of the compositions include water and showcase figures sitting by a window with a view of the sea.
