1 Comment for Jackie Hinkson: 5 Decades of Art

This is an excellent exhibition at the National Museum - which places alongside each other Hinkson's work over the 50 years. This enables us to see his evolution from a young talented artist to a mature accomplished master - the works are in several media including his best known medium of water colours. They trace his mastery of light and shadow, of texture and composition, and ultimately his emergence as Trinidad's leading observer of who we are as a people. Hinkson holds up a mirror so we see ourselves clearly, avoiding the bitterness of Naipaul, but with unflinching clarity, directness and occasionally a dry humour. These 50 years were very very well spent and the exhibition is a must-see.
