In Baba Ati Omo, artists Shariff and Tanisha Salakoh present a series of contemporary works that explore the balance between the conscious and subconscious mind. As father and daughter, each artist brings their distinctive style and perspective to the exhibition, reflecting both personal and shared experiences through the freedom of artistic expression.
Shariff’s works consist primarily of acrylic on canvas or paper, and feature loose gestural bursts of colour and impulsive mark making with playful delivery. Without direction or conscious decision, Shariff trusts his intuition and emotions to lead him. Salakoh finds inspiration in the unexpected, and admires the works of Arshile Gorky, Hans Hofmann, and Wassily Kandinsky.
Tanisha’s style is born from the subconscious, articulating her thoughts, feelings and emotions through abstraction. Working primarily with acrylic on canvas, she uses rich tones and haphazard lines to convey her emotional state, a “Self-Portrait” of the mind. Her unique compositions, inspired by Gerhard Richter and Jackson Pollock, allude to Abstract Expressionist and Action Painting techniques.
