Happy to discuss commissions, larger works and collaborations
Ije (pronounced Eee J) – Conceptual/expressionist mixed practice artist;
MA Fine Art Birmingham City University.
Undertaking durational activity in the landscape, my work reshapes embodied notions, responding to encounters with time, space and place; generating works activated through gesture, texture, layering, repetition, colour and reflectivity.
My works vary in size, most often on a larger scale and when painting I work predominantly in acrylics and oils intensively layering paint and incorporating other materials such as yarn, textiles, found / recycled objects like swarf, wire, glass to create tactile, highly textured and vibrant works.
I also take commissions and run workshops.
