It is always refreshing to chat with other artists and creatives who are open about their process, and moreso about the intent behind their practice.
So when Sheena Rose mentioned in a recent Skype conversation that she sketches everything, all the time, I was expecting her to pull out a few recent illustrations to make her point.
Instead, the Barbadian contemporary artist proceeded to flip the camera on the conversation, showing what amounted to books upon books of sketches exploring her own personal history, and what it means to be an artist with ambitions that quickly outgrow the island space.
See a few of the illustrations here, and listen below to Sheena Rose on her work, her life as an artist, and her penchant for blurring the lines between performance and reality in Ep.03 of The Audio Diary.
