Artist Statement: 

 

a soft purple is a part of Isabel’s ongoing series, colour and feel, inspired by Carrie Mae Weems’s Colored People. In this work Isabel sets out to investigate how monochromatic images can influence the way the viewer ‘reads’ the image as well as changes in emotional intonations.

 

Biography:

 

Isabel Okoro is a photographer and budding director currently living, working and schooling in Toronto, ON. Isabel developed an interest in photography at the age of 12 while attending a boarding school in Lagos, but it wasn’t until she moved to Toronto in 2016 and received her first camera that she began to develop her artistic practice. Isabel is currently in her senior year at the University of Toronto completing a double major in Neuroscience and Psychology. Isabel’s work largely focuses on Black youth experiences while exploring the interactions between the motherland and the diaspora. A self-proclaimed dreamer, Isabel’s work offers a combination of thoughts that acknowledge the past, confront the present and imagine new futures.
