Adesina has been creating figurative sculptures for over 13 years, and as such, has personally been transformed through the creation of art. Adesina focuses on conceptualizing family, community, and emotional dynamics with a goal of developing emotional awareness.
For Adesina, clay sculpture is a metaphor for life. Inner struggles become concept sculptures become symbols, coded messages that personify strength. Clay is unpredictable and unapologetic. It doesn’t forget its folds, it explodes, cracks, and morphs under fire. It survives this process and emerges resilient. Its imperfect knicks and scars are markers of a unique journey from mold to set. Her sculptures are manifestations of emotional vulnerability and patience. The heart of each piece connected by the thread of strength, guided by instinct. For each collector, the Adesina sculpture will hold its own meaning and representation. Still, the intentions behind each Adesina piece, from small to full scale busts each represent the final stage of vulnerability.
Her goal is honor and uplift the spirit in the Long Beach community through art. She has an taken a break from gallery installations and has shifted her focus to teaching. She has partnered with Play Nice in Long Beach, where she creates and often offers free clay workshops.
