Chatham: Thames Art Gallery, Chatham Cultural Centre, 2000
Jamaican-born artist, Winsom, immigrated to Canada, where her work displays an interest in landscape as a way to address questions of race, nation, citizenship and the exclusion of Black people from Canada's official narratives. Winsom's years in Canada prompted a spiritual reawakening within her, influencing her intuitive multimedia installations.
