From the Man & Metal series. Acrylic on cotton, 2002. Private collection. A continuum of subjugation is depicted by the interlocking images of the spinning wheel of the sugar mill, the chains of enslavement, the more modern image of the handcuff interlocking with the machete by its handle, and the saw-edged image suggesting torture and agony. The second layer deals with the sociological evolution of the Afro-Jamaican through the colonial – postcolonial eras, becoming more distinct in both facial features and clothing; articulating the change in periods as we enter modern times.
