Potent Pairing of Jamaica-born Artists

by Cate McQuaid

The Boston Globe, Apr. 8, 2000

Jamaican-born artists Kofi Kayiga and Winsom, who studied art together in Jamaica and both eventually settled in North America, have been reunited through their exhibition Kindred Spirits. Both artists' work deals with the spiritual concerns of growing up African in the Americas. Winsom's installations, paintings, and videos incorporate African religious symbols and Kayiga's paintings and drawings are intuitive and have many possible readings.
