Peach Mango Maverick
My Artistic practice Peach Mango Maverick is Fine Art as storytelling, I paint with words and use ArtBooks as canvas; in them I chronicle the journeying across life through the eyes of a British born Sixth Region Diasporan. The ArtBooks read as maps of those journeys.
My Artwork predominantly manifests threefold; Narratives, Visual Narratives and Grande Visual Narrative.
Narrative Artist Journals are both journal and workbook which describe some of the people, processes and tools that I engaged with on my journey of artistic recovery. They are a collection of artist journals which allow others to document their own individual creative journeys .
Visual Narrative ArtBook commissions are for those who want to capture the essence of a memory in a bespoke ArtBook. They are intimate translations of milestones in life such significant birthdates , special new additions to the family or bereavement, echoing the original intent of my return to art. ‘A Postman’s Legacy’ was the very first as a gift to my mother when we lost my father.
Grande Visual Narrative in contrast to Visual Narratives are paintings which unpack into exhibition as seen through the eyes of one of the first generation of British born Antiguans . I describe this artwork as digesting large social issues such as inequality and then spitting out the bones which then become a Grande Visual Narrative ArtBook.
African Violet …Hybrid of Circumstance began life as Visual Narrative’ A Postman’s Legacy’ but grew from a small bud of intimacy into a Grande Visual Narrative when my exploration encountered history, geography and identity which could not be contained in isolation.Peach Mango Maverick as a practice interrogates the historic philosophies which underpin our perceptions in the contemporary.
