Charmaine Watkiss @ Leeds Art Gallery
27 May 2022 - 30 October 2022
Explore the wisdom, strength and resilience of Caribbean women across generations in this new exhibition by Charmaine Watkiss.
The Wisdom Tree includes a number of Charmaine’s signature large-scale drawings as well as more private artworks and notebooks. Highly symbolic, subtle and poetic, Charmaine’s drawings fuse the artist’s interests in herbalism, alchemy and history. Researching the medicinal and physical capabilities of plants, she has personified a matrilineal pantheon of guardians safeguarding and facilitating cross-generational knowledge and empowerment.
