To the Rising Sun Bahamaland Art Exhibition at the Island House
Friday 11th October 2019 9:00 AM
The Island House invites you to the highly anticipated exhibition of new works by London-based Bahamian artist Lynn Parotti.
"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."
