Send Love inna Barrel, Kelley-Ann Lindo

Artist in Residence presentation/exhibition 
Monday December 12th at 7.00 pm.

Ebony G. Patterson, in collaboration with Alice Yard, is pleased to support the research and working residency of Jamaican artist Kelley-Ann Lindo,  taking place from November to December 2016. Lindo will present a new multi media work-in-progress, Send Love inna Barrel, this Monday December 12th at 7.00 pm. 
All are welcome.

My  artworks are explorations. They are based often on personal situations. My previous work looked into the memories and visual legacies remaining after years of having experienced repeated flooding. Recently, this has shifted to focusing on the impact of parental absence due to emigration. A new work-in-progress, Send Love inna Barrel, investigates what is referred to as the 'barrel children' syndrome within Caribbean culture.
I want to find a way to make the viewer become part of the work, as a kind of added component to make it happen. I have been experimenting with a silhouette of a young girl’s head derived from my childhood photographs. These drawings were then developed further into silkscreened multiples, wall graphics and assemblages as well as video explorations. I am using barrels as a channel through which persons can engage and communicate over a distance. I like the idea of barrels, as being both cultural and sculptural objects. - Lindo
