Edna Manley - Final Year Visual Arts Exhibition - 2012

I went to the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts recently for their final year show. There are some really talented young artists in Jamaica. It is clear that they put a lot of effort into the exhibition and I hope that this will be the beginning of greater things for them all. Unfortunately, I was unable to see all the student's work as some of the booths were closed on that day. However, I will share what I did manage to see.

Ottoa Wilson presented a body of work that examined the maligned nature of the Vulture (known in Jamaica as the John Crow). She utilized paint, collage and print techniques using familiar materials such as foil, linoleum and fabric to explore the subjects of dominance and subordination and the cultural practice of excessive decoration and heraldry to hide flaws. She highlights the magnificence of a creature that is often overlooked, ridiculed and ill-treated in an extremely thought-provoking way. For more information on Ottoa's work, she can be contacted at ottoa.wilson@yahoo.com.
