Dawn Okoro’s work is a study of the black form. Vantablack is one of the darkest substances on earth. The nude figures in her paintings are meant to be expressive, and their poses are inspired by fashion photography. Okoro’s minimal figurative paintings on canvas emphasize space, shape, color, and texture.
