Hometown: Halfway Tree, Jamaica
August 19, 2013
I'm originally from Jamaica. I like really smart people and smart conversations, and like the idea of being surprised.
I have a lot of schools and artists I prefer, but the ones that made a great impression on me was the Color Field painters: Ad Reinhardt, Clyfford Still, Rothko and Barnett Newman. Plus, there are the guys who were more calligraphic with their paint, like Soulages and Franz Kline.
I was once a photographer. I turned into an art writer and then a researcher on the museum visit. I feel that art and the museum have helped shape my life.
Cool group of people
