Welcome to Barbados Monthly Arts Events This is a completely free magazine created out of the need to inform so that we can get to exhibitions, artist talks, workshops and more, rather than hearing about events after they have taken place. I encourage anyone with a visual arts event to get in contact with me at corriescott@gmail.com and I will add a free page for you. Let’s get the arts out there! Please, pass this magazine on to others and so help the creative side of Barbados get all the exposure possible. Corrie

RAS AKYEM


PAINTING: My paintings explore, and attempt to articulate the exquisite loneliness and colossal indifference that one experiences as an artist in a HOSTILE visual space, and especially when that space is defined as HOME. i'm a visual artist; my primary material is my awkward imagination which i engage to investigate, manipulate or conjure secondary materials (found, fabricated or purchased) into new and sometimes surprising relationships of meaning and function....... Even though my oeuvre is eclectic, i maintain a particular interest in the human condition; specifically the fractured psyche of the African diaspora and the impact of the resulting sub-cultural fall-out which continues to gradually reshape our already mercurial identity! Working from within the underbelly of this post-colonial plantation yard (CARIBBEAN) drenched in bile and vomit, i'm constantly groping in the dark, while navigating between time and space, dream and reality, in a compulsive attempt to give evidence to something which has no other mundane means of manifesting itself; and always with the hope that the result (when it emerges) would surprise me! Hence, in this ancient ‘ritual’ of making art, i'm constantly attempting to map/negotiate/navigate that ‘uncertain’ space/terrain in the subconscious where reality exists without the burden of imposed meanings … and could be defined by per-requisites other than linear logic … ras akyem-i (art-aniMAL)*

ROSEMARY PARKINSON “The visions for these paintings came to me as I began a make-over of a statue of the Virgin Mary in Trinidad - they are my interpretation as someone that views the 'unknown' as deeply spiritual. My Caribbean Mary is a beautiful Human, the Core of our World, devoted Mother, Matriarch, Woman... the Nucleus, the Cell, if you will, of a people from different lands historically, now living together under one sky separated by water. The 'other beings' in the paintings depict our diverse nature represented - The Father, The Son & The Holy Ghost three being a number said to mean 'out of this world with no boundaries'.�
