Emmanuel Osahor: What we tend

Latcham Art Centre – 2 Park Dr.

Born in Nigeria and based in Toronto, Emmanuel Osahor’s artwork engages with beauty as a necessity for survival and a precursor to thriving. For What we tend, the artist depicts gardens as carefully considered and intricate sanctuaries. His paintings and etchings embody a collage-like sensibility, drawing from various sources to create new yet convincing garden settings. Also featured are recent ceramic fountains, which moves the exhibition toward the immersive.
