Possible Worlds presents the visual works of emerging artist Emmanuel Okot (Ottawa) in his first solo show.
In Early Vacation, self-taught artist Okot frames his work as an “experimental get-away”, wherein he explores different modes of visual expression through painting and mixed media. Drawing on personal feelings, emotions and thoughts and influenced by street art culture, Okot creates abstract, graphic pieces, reminiscent of graffiti walls layered in a dreamlike state. In producing works that are “everything and nothing”, Okot asks the audience to take respite to reflect on the internal and external aspects of their everyday lives.
