Blue Forest

UOL works Blue Forest: Although undated, it is likely that the artist executed this gouache in the early 1960s. Okeke produced a series of forest scenes in these years. A similar painting titled Primeval Forest (1962) is illustrated in Okeke-Agulu's text Postcolonial Modernism. The organic forms are communicated through sinuous, undulating lines. The leaves and branches appear to float above the picture plane, unanchored by perspective.
