Designer graphique, peinture, mixed media

My work can be considered explorations of the ‘communality’ of the human condition. I live in the here and now and rarely if ever delve into the nostalgic past. I regard nostalgia as ‘beer goggles’ for our current and contemporary reality. The reality of life in Trinidad and Tobago, like much of the Caribbean and the wider world, is one peppered with the good the bad the ugly and the ambivalent. These tend to be the ideas I wish to explore through the use of a visual language that allows the viewer to engage the moment and perhaps recreate/re-mix their own considerations of the work in a manner that is as immediate as its delivery and as familiar as the territory of their own backyard.
