UWI DCFA Visual Arts Final Year Student Works 2016
Through experimental means, my work takes the form of an installation, created using found materials to call into question righteousness, war, and purpose. I am drawn to issues of outrage, senselessness and extremity, interpreting it through the use of objects to create an experience which prompts the viewer to question themselves. My intent is to bring what appears to be a foreign issue to a Caribbean context, it is a reminder that all of humanity is connected as well as, visually manifest an ordeal.
The sculptural piece is formed using local found objects that are treated and manipulated to reflect the psychological effects of imprisonment and torture that those captured by extremists groups encounter.
I aim to highlight an issue that has to be confronted rather than ignored. In a society covertly separated by race, socio-economic standing, religion, be reminded that we are made of the same flesh and blood.
