Francisco Goya’s Saturn Devouring His Son

After Francisco Goya

In the feinin; “This was an artist who at first wanted to taste blood, and a man who thought the very ills of society. In dreams, he languished over his civil obligation. In this self portrait, I felt a man who knew who he was going to be. Determined, fierce and sensual in his ways. But in a way, I was locked in time, unable to see past what I saw. Myself, so matched, so permanent, so frightening.”

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

In this self-portrait of Mahatma Gandhi, I evoked a sense of purpose. This was a young man with a quiet disposition, a charmer that could quell a snake. Here I was Lord Ganesha, loyal to crown of self-preservation.

In the feinin; “My future rests on my inner determination, and of my strength, to call out to others, to see past the obstacles, and draw in an unity, a embryo, a seed of victory, everlasting, all encompassing circle, with a line.”

What happen brothers and sisters, who ended my journey  apart from you, I cried…

Feinin thought this time, he realized the moment of fairness, alone he assembled all he could do, his blood watered, his mind ached for pleasure, yet his heart was empty of will, toss too casually, ripped apart by thieves bending truths and lies. In his mind , the heavens opened, it was time to take back everything, except love.- Art, lessons, future, Frederich Schiller, mentor, precise, pristine, gift

Introspection – Eric Eustace Williams


In the later study of Eric Williams, I encountered many inconsistencies, and felt frustrated as if my mocking had hurt, but it was understandable clear that his vision never persuaded me to think otherwise, his love for this nation.

In the feinin; “We know that islands such as ours are in limbo. We share the same dreams of Nations much older and grander than ours. Please spend time building, working in harmony. Solve no ones problems but your own.. King, dream, united people, infant stage, money woes, marriage”


Dem small snake grow large and playing vicious now when I breed dem meh best in de Heliconia plant. Is time to sharpen meh cutlass blade and cut off dem head before dem tree bite and poison meh dead like ah Mah pih pee. Look how dem suffocate de fruit tree…..

Ladies and gentlemen, DEM SNAKE TOPPLING MEH HIGH CHAIR, DAUGHTER ERICA COME RESCUE MEH PLEASE BEFORE I BUST MEH HEAD AND DEM MAKE AH DISPLAY CAST OF IT MAKING MEH LOOK LIKE AH FOOL

ERICA in the distance; ” Daddy, daddy remember when you always got to say at the finest hotels in London and those world class cigar houses , daddy, daddy remember.

Eric; “ERICA WHY DON’T YOU KEEP YUH FOCKING BIG MOUTH SHUT, BEFORE YOU SPILL WHERE WE STASH DE MONEY. WHEN IS MY TIME, YUH BETTER NOT FOIL UP DE SUSPENSE TO KEEP MEH NAME IN HISTORY, NOW GO MAKE TWO SALA ROTI FOR MEH, I FEELING FOR CURRY.”

Oonya as Very dark Black

“Break Out”

It should be noted that these character stereotypes are based on the actual cast call for a film to be produced in Trinidad by Frances-Anne Solomon and Oonya Kempadoo, and aptly for the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival, 2010. The poster artist selected for the festival this year is Christopher Cozier

Shroud of Turin

A cloth covering a hoax

In this study of the Shroud of Turin, I covered myself with a dye to represent blood

In the Feinin; Here, in this position, I found myself faced with a certain truth, but also a lie. Beneath this shroud there was a leper, a man cased off, wrapped in linen and preserved. It came to no surprise. Alone, mastermind, cure, redundant, tremble*

The stain

It should be noted that this study was produced before the new evidence was uncovered over the Shroud of Turin in October, 2009
