To the Rising Sun Bahamaland Art Exhibition at the Island House
Wednesday 9th October 2019 9:00 AM
You are invited to stop by for a special pre-opening sneak peek and advance purchase opportunity of the latest selection of paintings by London-based Bahamian artist Lynn Parotti.
Sneak Peek: Wednesday October 9, 9am-5pm! Join us for a glass of wine at the opening on Thursday, October 10th from 6pm.
"An adaptation of a line from the national anthem, 'To The Rising Sun, Bahamaland', focuses on the state of reef health and the role of the mangrove as protector of coastline and nursery to breeding marine species. Or does it cynically bear witness to our risen temperatures and the current climate crisis in our manmade Anthropocene?
The historical objectification of coral and the wonderment of under the sea is replaced by a full embrace of the reality with which our island nation is faced as the tension in these canvases relay a fracturing beauty. And all this is taking place in the here and now; albeit sooner than speculated."
