My work often alludes to social misconceptions of cultural practices, with psychological underpinnings. I make conscious efforts to depict the cultural values and practices of my Caribbean heritage, which reflect my experiences and desire to gain a deeper insight into my own identity.
Throughout my youth, I always had heavy involvement in Steel Pans and Notting Hill carnival in London. This has enabled me to draw upon both authentic Caribbean experiences as well as my experiences of merged Caribbean and British cultures. As part of my approach, I reflect on historic events, people and music to draw parallels between processes and a range of societal outcomes. This contributes to an expression of my human experience and consequently opens up a ‘grey area’ for greater understanding of differential perception across different classes and cultures around the world.
