My work aims to giving authorship and dialectic visibility to unconventional thought, inspired by unique characters, with a strong sense of purpose, difference and intent.
In doing so, ROACH hopes to provide a much-needed platform for the existential narrative, and facilitate philosophical inquiry, to challenge our assumptions about knowledge, reality and existence.
With each series / collection exploring a different thesis or topic, ROACH artworks include drawings, paintings and sculptures – all of which are comprised of two parts or elements, known as volumes.
Written works by L.K.Ifayemi borrow from the world of film / cinema to re-imagine, intellectualise and narrate the most profound of human stories - covering journey's of difference, trauma, struggle and triumph.
"For me, the ROACH narrative is eclectic and autobiographical. It is a true reflection of myself - my virtues, my values and my outlook.
In the lives of the invisible, the forgotten and the forsaken, I seek to capture some element of truth - through the smaller moments we often overlook and / or take for granted.
These everyday, bygone and seemingly trivial nothings, are more important and truthful than any other. These are the moments between the momentous."
