1ST SUBPORTFOLIO - INTERACTIONS
"Through INTERACTIONS I explore the
nuclear family, the extended family,
communities and selected movements
and I observe and listen."
As a child, I made hundreds of thousands of dots on paper. I enjoyed colouring books, and very much enjoyed join-the-dots books. Lack of access to such lead to my creating these dots on paper. Once I delved back into art again, I would come to find out that this is called VECTOR DRAWING.
As an artist, Abiosè was initially heavily inspired by Njideka Akunyili Crosby, having attended the same school, as well her being a sister of a former classmate of Abiosè. Abiosè who herself is one of the in-betweens, responded to Njideka's art, turning the point of view towards the lives of others, Extrospectively. EXTROSPECTION (EVENTS AND WEDDINGS, CORPORATE COLLABS, MUSEUM OF MOVEMENTS) developed into creating frameworks for peoples lives upon which their futures are built.
As a medical doctor, moving through Extrospection, Abiose develops a 3D aspect of this Subportfolio influenced by her daily interactions as a medical doctor and family doctor, developing Sustainable Unifying Optimal Health in THE DOCTOR WILL SEE YOU NOW.
2ND SUBPORTFOLIO - EXPANSION
"I make my own ceilings and
it covers sustainable unifying optimal health"
One of the most defining things an artist friend Adelaide Damoah said to Abiosè was that she should develop the story of what she wants to express, authentically. This came just after putting in a lot of effort to develop the 1st subportfolios, a statement that inspired Abiosè to empower the other three subportfolios.
The EXPANSION Subbportfolio started off as a space Abiosè gave herself to explore creativity. While it developed, several folders got born. This folder also contains early works and miscellaneous works.
EPIPHANY & EPITOME is the first expression of Sustainable Unifying Optimal Health.
With BACKDROPS, Abiosè explores representative and nonrepresentative abstraction
SIBLING BRIDGES is large scale vector drawing.
FLATTERNATORS, because "I make my own ceilings".
3RD SUBPORTFOLIO - MOVEMENT & PERFORMANCE
"In order to be listened to, leading action needs to be injected"
While it is great to listen, action is also required to be listened to - MOVEMENT & PERFORMANCE
For several months, we had a reminder on our family Time Tree: Plantation. My husband had set the repeating reminder, but we both had no idea, not the faintest about what this reminder was about. Come 7th March 2020, my husband said the Plantation day is here. At 22:45 the PLANTATION aspect of my subportfolios came into being.
