Réna King Black and White Barbados
Written by The Editor on August 15, 2020
Black and White Barbados series which is focused on reemphasizing the colonial history of an island that is now seen as a colorful tourist hotspot destination. The fantasy-like overly colorful depiction erases the dark history that still influences the people of Barbados and that is what I wanted to capture in these paintings. I intentionally made them black and white to strip the images of their color and give a more haunting and disturbing visual of a Caribbean island.
