`Bathers' is a painting by Nigerian artist Segun Aiyesan from the `Women of Colour' series. In the work the artist expresses an appreciation of the form and essence of female-identifying bodies represented subjectively - their inter-connectedness and the complexity of race, gender and sexual identity. The artist also attempts to highlight their beauty in a heterogeneous society, where differences in our bodies and skin tones and genders are cast as strengths, and not suspicious affronts. The bigger series explores all of these themes and also how confluence with society, and unity is viewed as a tool for the survival of the human race.
