Women Alone @ Cane Roots Gallery
Women Alone, a series of 19 water color and oil paintings on paper. Each painting reflects the experience or memory of her Caribbean existence but also makes a specific commentary about the nuances of identity, womanhood and cultural connections to historical and contemporary existence. This series of figurative paintings are physical manifestations of things that are ethereal such as memories and experiences. Memories and experiences are tied to consciousness and identity. Her hope to relate to those deep subconscious thoughts and make the invisible visible by creating images which reflect a sometimes surreal, sometimes ethereal quality, removing them from any specific marker of physical time and space. These paintings are a sort of capsule of time which presents women as important Icons of culture, bearing and passing along traditions with which we identify, standing strong when necessary, enjoying life when possible.
The Women Alone series will be exhibited on Art Thursday, 5-8pm, December 17th, 2020 at Cane Roots Art Gallery, 24 Company St. Christiansted. The exhibition will continue until February 28th, 2021.
