Untitled 02 by Hurvin Anderson 

 

Anderson's landscapes are usually unpopulated. Drawn from memory, they are a fusion of his experience of growing up in UK and of his parents’ childhood homes in the Caribbean where he spent holidays. The grilles not only recall urban street furniture in both countries, or the security screens found in many West Indian bars, but they also convey a sense of always belonging somewhere else and excluded from the sense of home that imbues many readings of landscapes.
