Thomas-Girvan shows her work in London

 

Jamaican born artist Jasmine Thomas-Girvan has a show at the David Zwirner Gallery in London. The recipient of many accolades, including the Commonwealth Foundation Arts Award and a Silver Musgrave Medal, Thomas-Girvan has also been profiled in the Huffington Post, HYPEBEAST, Time Out London and The Jamaica Observer. Now Trinidad-based, she describes her work as “diverse and rich as the land we are privileged to walk on...” and is influenced by “Caribbean people, myths, architecture, literature, food, fashion, moon fire, birdsongs, radio waves, and even the way feathers mysteriously arrive carried on the wind.” The London exhibition, titled Affinities, also includes British artist Chris Ofili, who also lives in Trinidad. The show runs until September 21st.
