"Painting Poetry is an anthology of poetic interpretations of art presenting thirty poems written by Adisa 'AJA' Andwele and images of paintings by seventeen artists. The artists are Ras Akyem, Ras Ishi, Ras Jahaziel, Omowale Stewart, Corrie Scott, Heather-Dawn Scott, Pierre Nigel and Jadisa Andwele from Barbados; the late Andre Normil and Frantz Zephirin from Haiti; the late Romare Bearden, Alaiyo Bradshaw and Chrissie Dowler from the USA; and from Cuba, the late Wifredo Lam, Omar Estrada, Annie Maxwell and Jesus Gastell Soto. The poetry and paintings cover themes related to the Caribbean's multicultural history, including the survival of African culture--its social, cultural, and religious practices in the Americas as well as nature, abstract forms, and social interactions within urban landscape. Painting Poetry symbolizes a journey along two paths--two different physical creative dimensions--but within the experiences is a common destination as the paths lead to the same space. "show more
