Brianna McCarthy's Saints & Jumbies
In the bottom left portrait above, it reads:
I have called you but you did not answer.
It's in the hair, the strands. What sounds like a teenager's plea, is
texture — light and shadow — cursive ink. She doodles and time draws a
mirror, a portrait of something deeper, intuitive and always beautiful.
Blink once. Just dots, lines and colour. Blink twice. A window to her
soul. She connects. How brave one must be to paint portraits.
I have called you but you did not answer. Brianna McCarthy's calling needs no answer really. No third party validation. It's her questions that I look forward to, and her answers, be it illustrations, collages, dollies, etc., I admire and support. Congratulations Brianna McCarthy.
Her show entitled, Saints and Jumbies, is on at the splendid Medulla Gallery, in Woodbrook, Trinidad until June 13th.
