Eva Obodo is a mixed media artist who is known for his experimentations with unconventional materials and processes. Focusing on fibre and charcoal as conceptual mediums, Obodo creates reliefs and free-standing works using diverse techniques including wrapping, typing, and bundling. Constructing abstract forms from a collection of discarded objects, Obodo calls into question opposing cultural forces. While nylon fibre and wrapped jute sacks reference material culture in a global context, his charcoal works allude to the fragility of natural elements. Obodo engages the temporality of his appropriated materials, deconstructing the past and present in order to shed light on the uncertainty of the future.
