KingstonPieta_46x60_Acrylic-linen_2008

Kingston Pietà. 46″x60″. Acrylic on linen. Artist’s collection. Exhibited in the Biennial National Exhibition 2008. The nurturing and protective care of our women is extended symbolically to the fallen gun man. The depiction is not religious so much as sociological. The intent is to refer in general terms not only to the violence in Jamaican society, but also to the empathetic support demonstrated by the Jamaican woman for her man, and the destruction of our youth by the violence around them.
