About The Artwork

This piece along with the others from the moroccan series has been inspired by the 9 years i spent there as a child. But this is particular one is about the last call to prayer before the sun sets, so awaited during the month of ramadan when most people fast from dawn to dusk. I have always liked the contrast between the powerful thundering loudspeaker reaching deep and far in the city and the streets suddenly empty and quiet.

I create colourful dreamscapes inhabited by silhouettes of living creatures longing for an Elsewhere. My work evokes our endless quest for an elusive destination (be it a higher ground or a different emotional state) by contrasting movement and stillness, shadows and light, emotions and reality. One of my trademarks is the use of collaged elements, interwoven in complex layers of acrylics paint, to reflect the flotsam and jetsam of life. My colours are vivid: reflecting where I grew up (Caribbean and Morocco). Other key influences have been my travels and the works of Matisse, Frida Kahlo & Karin Mamma Anderson.
