ABOUT MY ART

"For a culturally complex ‘black’ person from the Caribbean there were, inevitably, demanding questions concerning painting’s relevance. As a curator and someone interested in theoretical aspects of art, it seemed necessary to take all these polemical ideas into consideration. But working now, in photography and multimedia installations, my interest is in paring down complexities to essential practical ideas; particularly those basic ones that concern the visual and establishing an assertive abstract image. New constructions are made mostly of paper, twine, canvas, and other materials attached directly to the wall. Unframed, the bounding edges are unrestricted, left free to respond to the visual 'pressures' of what happens within the piece."
