Jadé Fadojutimi

Jadé Fadojutimi (b. 1993, London, UK) lives and works in London, UK. Fadojutimi works primarily with paintings, interrogating the construction and constraints of identity, whilst offering a space for individual liberation. Responding to personal experience, Fadojutimi layers veils of colour with rhythmic, gestural brushstrokes and at times scrapes the paint back, building exhilarating, immersive environments where forms on the cusp of recognition dissolve into abstraction. Recent and upcoming exhibitions include Pippy Houldsworth Gallery, UK (2020, 2017); PEER, UK (2019); and Galerie Gisela Capitain, Germany (2019); Taka Ishii Gallery, Japan (2021); The Hepworth Wakefield, UK (2021) and ICA Miami, USA (2021).

​​​​Liverpool Biennial is delighted to announce the release of a limited edition print by artist Jadé Fadojutimi.

This piece will be Fadojutimi’s first lithograph edition and accompanies her paintings that will be exhibited at Liverpool Biennial 2021: The Stomach and the Port.

Fadojutimi’s works reflect on her self-image, and serve to question the construction and constraints of identity through bright and charged colours. Her interrogation of complex emotional landscapes forms a dynamic translation of the multiplicity of the human experience.

A Tidal Wave of Perception is composed in several layers, presenting a swirling tangle of translucent colour and liquid gesture. Abstracted, organic shapes wash in and out of focus – languid limbs and trailing, leafy tendrils. The work’s title draws attention to the effusive, fluidity of the artist’s mark making, a quality reflected in Fadojutimi’s conception of the self – a complex, layered and continuously evolving identity.
