JADÉ FADOJUTIMI: CAN WE SEE THE COLOUR GREEN BECAUSE WE HAVE A NAME FOR IT?
Jadé Fadojutimi (b. 1993, United Kingdom) is one of the most exciting young painters working in Britain today. Her large-scale paintings combine abstract and figurative elements in compositions that have intense graphic energy. At the heart of Fadojutimi’s work is an introspective mining of facets of her own identity and the social and cultural environments that shape them. Her paintings are typically made in bursts of energetic mark-making. While some are worked on over time, others are completed in a single sitting, and each evoke a memory or experience.
For her first UK solo exhibition, held at The Hepworth Wakefield, Fadojutimi has made a new body of work between June - August 2022 which reflects on her experiences during the Covid-19 pandemic.
This book, which takes its title from the exhibition, presents this new body of work alongside Fadojutimi’s own writings, published for the first time, an in-depth interview with Andrew Bonacina which reveals more of Fadojutimi’s processes, and an introductory essay by The Hepworth Wakefield’s Senior Curator Eleanor Clayton.
