Each of Fadojutimi's works sits between abstraction and figuration. The artist shifts between gestures and repeated forms to produce her own distinctive visual language. I Present Your Royal Highness is an exploration of the artist's self. Its title is a knowing nod to the role ego plays in individual expression. Fadojutimi's work explores the fluid nature of identity in relation to the world that shapes it. Her dynamic surfaces capture an ever-evolving landscape of emotions. She likens her paintings to a diary of her experience.
