BEHIND THE ARTWORK
“Home, the familiar, comfort, inside, safe, homebodies at ease, memories. A fever dream of home, soft pastel colours of the houses and shops in Jamaica, the blues, the water, the green, brown skin at ease at home. I want to remember this.”
- Mekia Machine, 2021
“Now are the woods all black, but still the sky is blue."
- Marcel Proust Remembrance of Time Past, Volume I: Swann’s Way & Within a Budding Grove
