Artwork

An expressionist portrait of a woman caught in a moment of laughter. Artist Wynston Edun says it's unclear whether she is laughing with or at the viewer. "The image directly engages the viewer somewhere between order and chaos," he elaborates. "I create portraits which tend to reveal too much detail, and too little - the very element of ambiguity is an invitation into the piece." Wynston adds, "laughter after all is the best medicine."

Wynston Edun

Columbia, Maryland

Wynston Edun was born in Nigeria and emigrated to the United States in 1987 after receiving his degree in Fine Arts from the University of Benin. He constructs semi-abstract figures with spontaneous bursts of color and impulsive mark making, using both traditional and non-traditional techniques. Wynston’s inspiration derives from human behaviors and characteristics which he depicts by layering color and texture with palette knives, brushes, and natural sponges. Inspired by the narrative figurative style of traditional African art, Wynston’s influences include artists of the African modernist genre who combine traditional and contemporary aesthetics to convey emotion.
