Where some may see flat, static narratives, Toyin Odutola sees a spectrum of tonal gradations and realities…

Odutola is literally creating black portraiture with a ballpoint pen ink. Seeking to illustrate that in-between state in an individual where the overching definition is lost.

In these drawings, Skin as geography is the terrain expanded by emphasizing the specificity of blackness.

From there, the possibilities of portraying a fully-fledged person are endless.
