In this exhibition, there is a real ‘life’ to the works, a happiness and light that can only come from a place with such island colours and radiant sun.

This exhibition showcases vibrant, colourful works from contemporary Caribbean artists illustrating a culture of art and imagination. With abstract, surrealist, and figurative works, we learn about the people of the Caribbean through their colours and contemporary styles and ideas.

On the canvases from Manuel, the greens, oranges, blues and yellows vibrate. Even in the predominantly black and white works from Jorge Delgado Gutierrez, although there is minimal colour, the textures are lively and animated. Milene Busutil Salgado translates dreams, history, and poetry into paintings.  Visually, she aims to engrave the image in the observer’s mind.  In these energized works, one can see the legacy of preceding masters’ skill, with the addition of a refined, contemporary Caribbean style.  While viewing these pieces one perceives a whole world, a personality, a culture, which words are not aptly able to describe.
