Lindenity - the Unmasked series
(Pronounced line - dentity)
Linedenity began as a self portrait using a single element of design - line. The self exploration expanded to creating other portraits of the basic face shapes; round, oval, square, heart etc. using identifiable characteristics of races represented in our melting pot of ethnicities in Trinidad and Tobago.
This birthed the geometric exploration of Lindenity- the Unmasked series.
Unmasked is a range of simple line outlines of the face to complex portraits mapping the contour structure with geometric patterns. Patterns were created by rotating, flipping, overlapping and mirroring the faces.
The aim of the Unmasked series is to remove the barriers that define us of class, socio-economic status, race and discrimination and remain with our bear essentials; our features passed through the generations from our fore-parents.
Remove my prejudice and we are one.
One in body, mind and soul.
A unity that is red blood cells in our body.
A common thread of thought and a spark ignited in the soul.
Sparking a fire that connects us to the earth.
Never letting a texture or hue divide us.
We strive together,
We aspire together,
