Tuni Adeniyi-Jones: Deep Dive

In “Deep Dive,” White Cube is presenting new paintings and lithographs by the British Nigerian artist Tunji Adeniyi-Jones. Existing in fields of color, Adeniyi-Jones’s stylized subjects (often representative of figures from mythology, religion, and ceremonies) float in spaces devoid of any specific horizon or orientation, surrounded by swirls of energy or environments of leafy flora. Appearing as though they might be dancing or poised ready for movement, the artist’s recognizable rounded, muscular bodies and their surroundings address the artist’s own Yoruba heritage, the Black-American culture of his home in Brooklyn, and the work of past artists including the tile designs of William de Morgan, Aaron Douglas’s use of silhouette, and the fluid imagery of Ben Enwonwu.
