Afroease

The AfroEase collection are paintings initially inspired by fashion photography of 1920 – 1960’s. I have used the Afro to reclaim it for myself. I was a child of the 70’s and being mixed-race created challenges … I hated my Afro back then. The past gives rise to questions relating to identity and this subject I have always questioned. I sometimes place the Afro character in settings where African or Caribbean are under represented. I use this form; a natural non-European hairstyle to represents freedom, an unwinding and a natural flow with what ‘is’ in my paintings. I am interested in using our differences to unite, so although the collection has a cultural reference, the implication behind the use is to portray a sense of acceptance… to go with the flow and let go, movement and freedom with all.
