This issue features artwork from artist Brianna McCarthy, a mixed media visual communicator working and living in Trinidad and Tobago. She is a self-taught artist and aims to create a new discourse examining issues of beauty, stereotypes, and the intricacies and dynamics of representing Afro-Caribbean women who are portrayed as being strong, long-suffering, exoticized and picturesque beings against a backdrop of poverty, hardship, abuse and/or scorn. Her form takes shape through masking and performance art, fabric collage, traditional media and installation pieces.
