Recognising Jamaican art

Posted: October 3, 2016 in Uncategorized

Hmmmm how does one recognise Jamaican art. Art expressions are a reflection of one’s culture. In Jamaica we take note that there are several world cultures being woven into one.. and then there are individuals who remain influenced by others.

Like the performing artists, the sculptures by Jamaicans, in particular, of wood are easier to be identified when placed among works internationally.

BUT with our art being a potpouri of culture, especially with European Art styles being taught and forced as the standard in schools, hardly anyone emerges with a style of their own to claim their work as one true form of authentic Jamaican art.

Truthfully therefore, a very limited number of artists in Jamaica define Jamaican art. Most Jamaican artists love to do colourful works when it comes to painting for example.

‘Intuitives’ was one word coined to describe Jamaicans who emerged without formal training and did their thing their own way and were acknowledged and sought out for their unique offerings.

Great articles on Jamaican art

Posted: October 3, 2016 in Uncategorized

If you ever need to learn about a Jamaican artist, check out a few websites and locations. Galleries around Jamaica are useful and so too is the JCDC.

However reading online is the quickest. Institutions may have their own websites, but then they dont always cover everybody, and some artists who should be highlighted still manage to slip through the cracks.

Then there are other kinds of artists, and types who are noteworthy.

Great magicians such asĀ Kemarch Dodd are written about on full media site of Anthea McGibbon.

Supporters of the Arts of Jamaica are highlighted too.

So you’ve got an issue… Quarreling can be so frustrating, and an unforgivable waste of time.. What then do you do? Find a solution.
Write to the Jamaica Legal wiz for quality and qualified research. Then if you need an attorney for technical legal assistance, you can get help too.
