Yes, We Have Met Before (Triptych)

Mixed Media on Canvas

“Liminality, is a state of ambiguity, lacking social consciousness, often being disoriented to the point of feeling anonymous; as political, cultural, and social norms are within a state of unending transition.

Since its inception Jamaican culture, has been in this state of liminality.  Neither in nor out, neither first world nor third, Jamaica’s norms and functions ​are in a state of constant flux and our political history has created a situation of generational deadlock. Jamaica is an ideal that has been marketed as paradise while ​having one of the highest murder rates in the world. It is an island of such splendor and sheer beauty, that Ian Fleming decided to​ vacation on the island to write a book about a spy that kills, lays on the beach, and of course, gets the girl, ​ (James Bond, Dr. No 1962, first of the Bond franchise).  This liminality, however, has created a strange apartheid state, where one section of the population has no idea that they live in “paradise”, creating a social phenomenon of a national double consciousness.

‘Yes, We Have Met Before’ responds to this state of idyllic splendor surrounded with the effects of a militarized state. ”
