Trapped in paradise is a body of work that was created during the quarantine portion of Covid-19 in 2020. It examines ideas of paradise as a type of cage, not only with its imagery but with its ideologies both taught and adapted from the western world. In addition to imagery such as the palm tree and mother sally, I touch on things such as mental slavery, blind faith, and followers as well as death, and birth.
This series also explores the different aspects of my identity as a black Barbadian Contemporary artist. It touches on different aspects like nationalism through works that deal with the projection of Barbadian national identity through symbolism and suggestion.
