SOIMADOU IBRAHIM

SFA PROJECTS AT 45 WHITE ST

FOR LIFE IS NOT ETERNAL

The exhibition, For Life is Not Eternal, marks a departure for French-Comorian, London-based artist Soimadou Ibrahim, who forgoes his typical imagery of familial characters painted from memories or photographs in exchange for imagery of flora in isolation. Vegetation has always accompanied his iconic figures in paintings but never have they entirely stood alone. Formally he gives humans and plants equal weight, using vibrant colors and choppy, thick brushstrokes to render both. Here, however, flora no longer serves as backdrop, instead taking center-stage and acting as stand-ins for his family, his memories, and his Comorian heritage. Plants, and in particular the Musa species (Banana trees), are the one constant for the artist; they are the thread that connects him back to his communal roots, anchoring the perpetual state of movement, both physical and psychological, that he occupies as a child of the diaspora.
