LeRoy Clarke’s admirers at the National Museum of Trinidad and Tobago under the auspices of UNESCO. An Artist as a living Heritage

The National Museum of Trinidad and Tobago honoured LeRoy Clarke with an exhibition of works both belonging to the gallery and the artist himself. This was a festive occasion as drummers welcomed guests to his opening located on the upper floor of the museum. There were soft life pan music, enactments related to poetry, storytelling and African affirmations and prayers.

In 2005, Clarke had a major retrospective at the National gallery. But this time, what is exhibited are a smaller collection in scale. yet these paintings show the mechanics behind the artist and also gives the public the opportunity to take a closer at his work and to see how he paints, in textures, compositions, colour and concepts pertaining to him masked as a kinetic puzzle.
