My work is based on the concept of infusing moods and elements . My paintings are
vivid, full of life and colour, because this is what I am. They are a reflection
of my inner self; the respect of the life I lead and treasure.
Titles are often instantaneous and typically infer a correlation between the piece
and a snapshot of life at that moment. Each painting is an eclectic mix of messages
open to the interpretation of all.
My work is not prescriptive because I have my own influences and this can only serve
to inspire me more. Free will is a prerequisite for my work.
My "acrylics" are in different sizes and are all extremely marketable depending on
your taste and statement.
ooking at a painting should be a moving experience. I have always been struck by
the romanticism of finding a painting that lifts you out of yourself and moves you
and holds you purely in the moment, as if the world has stopped to let you appreciate
something entirely new.
In 2002, I embarked on a philosophical Masters degree to explore the nature of the
aesthetic experience in its fullest depth. My dissertation, entitled 'Is the aesthetic
experience revelatory of an exclusive modality of truth?’ led me to discover Kant’s
theory of the sublime, and it is this model that underpins my exploration as an artist.
I am drawn to the idea of conveying a deeper sense of truth in a culture that is
alienating in its pursuit of endlessly communicating specific ‘messages’.

Abi Adeyemi is an abstract painter predominantly working in acrylic on canvas. For
Abi the act of creation is one of invention, exploration and experimentation. Only
recently discovering her natural ability to translate her thoughts and emotions in
to a visual language, Abi is developing her creative skills as she paints, gaining
hands on experience with the materials and techniques as well as fine tuning her
intuition and aesthetic as she goes along. The range of form, colour and scale found
throughout her work reflects this stage of Abi Adeyemi's artistic development and
allows us an insight into her life. Londonart.co.uk 2004
