Johney Ohene

tablet, The Tabernacle, Powis Square W11

18 March - 25 April
Open daily 12-6pm

In the mid 1990s, Ghanaian painter Johney Ohene renounced the pleasures of oil paint and pastel for an entirely digital making process. His characteristic blend of cubism, constructivism, and traditional painting took on a new lease of life with the flexibility and ease of control that the computer afforded. Hundreds of different variations and permutations of a picture can be tested and stored on the hard drive, leading to a practice which is truly contemporary in its amorphousness.

The new exhibition at tablet gallery showcases five of these new digitally-produced paintings, which reference African art and Eurocentric avant-gardism through their compositional structures and subject matter. Although widely shown abroad this is the first major UK exhibition of this London-based artist for a decade.

The Tabernacle is an arts and education led community centre specialising in fine art, dance and digital technology. We are pleased to be working with an artist who genuinely traverses boundaries and refuses to be tied down by old fashioned definitions and expectations.

Johney Ohene was educated at Adisadel College in Ghana before coming to the UK to study at Maidstone and later London Guildhall. He has had solo exhibitions as far afield as Germany, Florida, Barcelona and the Bahamas, and has featured in several publications on African painting.
