A self-taught artist working in photography, installation, collage, and digital media, Bosede A. Opetubo’s practice explores the lives of women and what she sees as “the small choices that come to define us.” The Jamaica Plain Branch of the Boston Public Library will display her recent digital collage series titled “Wallpaper.”
First created during the height of the pandemic in 2021, the project began as a paper sculpture installation in the artist’s home, and expanded into drawings and digital illustrations. Its imagery veers into abstraction merging human silhouettes with expanses of crumbled-up multicolored papers, at times resembling mountain ranges and at others, fallen leaves. Opetubo invites viewers of the project to “join me on this overwhelming, necessary, and maddening journey that, as a parent, I try to find beauty and purpose in.”
The library is open Monday-Wednesday 10-6, Thursday 12-8, and Friday 9-5, and Saturday 9-2 (closed Sundays). The exhibition space is located on the lower level.
