Alvaro Barrington is a Caribbean artist who grew up in a Caribbean American community in Brooklyn and studied art for over twenty years in London. On my first visit to London.
The show at Sadie Coles HQ presents a series of paintings which explore the relationships between London, the Caribbean and New York. It’s the first chapter, so it starts with birth, sex, nurturing and family (famalay) which is the first relationship we have in the world.
