28 MAY - 13 JUNE 2021


Wunika Mukan Gallery is pleased to present the works of Laju Sholola and Sophie Goudman-Peachey in Primary Textures, an exhibition on view from May 28- June 13, 2021 in Lagos, Nigeria.  


Lagos based artist Laju Sholola and London based Sophie Goudman-Peachey center their work on womanhood, inner strength and self-discovery. Both artists reimagine their personal observations and reflections through the bodies, expressions and postures of their subjects. Primary Textures reflects on the tremendous strength it takes to be vulnerable. 


Laju Sholola, b. 1989, is a self-taught artist currently living and working in Lagos. Her work is mostly inspired by close observations and personal experiences of our evolution process in the journey to self-discovery. She creates simple yet visually compelling figurative drawings/paintings that reflect the states of mind in this process.


Her artistic style is depicted by a distinctive approach of painting with tea, ink, and acrylic on paper, and more recently, canvas. This technique involves the use of controlled spills of tea and ink to create fluid transparent tones of the backgrounds and skins of her predominantly female subjects. Her latest series is titled- “In My Feelings”.


Sophie Goudman-Peachey, b.1994, is a London-based multidisciplinary artist. In her latest series- “Come forth and swim here, these waters are safe” , her work combines practices of painting, collage, textile and printmaking to reconstruct existing narratives surrounding women in society. Her collective body of work is about women owning and reclaiming their strength and power whilst also revealing their vulnerability, femininity, androgyny and masculinity. Her work aims to turn the patriarchal narrative on its head by empowering women through intersectional politics of identity, race and sexuality and allowing space for women to be whoever they want.
