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.
