Ehafo

In response to the hardships of the last few years (both economic and health related) Elisia Nighidishange presents Ehafo (joy) an exhibition that is intended to celebrate happiness and to bring a smile to the faces of all who see it. Consisting primarily of sculptures and printmaking this exhibition is the fourth solo show in the artists career. 

My artworks are meant to portray and reflect different aspects of traditional and contemporary situations. The ideas and concepts I choose to work with are the ones that give me the perfect context in which to use my materials, making it easier for me to manipulate the medium and give the artworks conceptual meaning, while expressing my deep spiritual feelings, and enjoying the unexpected beauty of every outcome.” (Elisia Nghidishange)
