      The Artist Statement

      What is Arts? Many scholars has said one thing or the other about the word Art but will save us from been bore with theories. Nevertheless, one might therefore try to understand the nature of arts in its visual by first developing a clear definition of the term "Art" One could then turn to the question of how a specifically, visual art is to be distinguished from a non-visual art. The visual arts which I create would then refer to that class of arts understood as visual in required sense.

      The built of understanding and appreciating of visual image or form on a ground or flat surface enhance the viewer the aesthetical advantage of the art.

      In other word, it is generally said that "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder". Art or an Art work is then what the viewer says it is. The body of work on display this year is far apart from what was displayed in the last three years. The exhibits for last year for instance were experimental since creativity is not static, and change is the mother of invention, the artist is not exempted from creating new things and showcasing new ideas. Last year was basically a research on wood, and also making statement with it, burnt and in its natural forms introducing little or nothing as design, which made them appealing to viewers.

      Then art is an awesomely versatile site of human creative engagement, which is a sleep on of the cultural entity interpreted in a visual from with musical instruments. It serves as a record of history for future generation.

      You will agree with me that we live in a world of creativity. When creativity disappears, the world ceases to exist. I remember Mr. Tony Anthony Ogunde in one of his statement he said Art is a translation of the impression of the subject matter he handles, what he produces is determined by the dialogue generated by the subject matter.

      LATENT REALITY therefore focus on the supernatural refilled in the physical. Thought are intangible but not until it is interpreted on a paper or canvas as drawing, painting and piece of sculpture, it remain illusive and invisible.

      No wonder, until God declared and said Let there be light, light did not appear, so also is the power of the creative ability of man.

      I hope you will enjoy the unprecedented dramatic free flow of pigment in transparency display before us.

      In conclusion, Art then is any form of creation by anyone whether scientific or not
