Tomatice & Pear
With food on the brain while speaking with my mum on the phone regarding plans for our upcoming family reunion in Jamaica and the language differences between Patios and ‘Standard English’ has got me reminiscing about listen to my Grandmother talk about the big ‘tomatice’ and piece of ‘pear’ [avocado] she had with her lunch that day and how nice they were. At the time I thought they were discussing vegetables but right now, I would love to be sat in the sun, eating lunch filled with tomatice and pear..
A personal piece.
Water colour, Fine liner, Photoshop
This piece was created using fine liner and marker pens and then photocopied to create a glitch edit style drawing.
Ackee is a soft savoury fruit that originated in western Africa. It was brought to Jamaica during the transatlantic slave trade and is today known for making up half of the countries national dish; ackee and salt fish.
This piece is a watercolour featuring the fruit in its raw and natural form and is part of a series of paintings featuring traditional Jamaican ingredients.
This piece is a small water colour depicting the image of my mother and grandmother.
