Brianna McCarthy’s second solo exhibition, Saints + Jumbies, opened on May 22 at Medulla Art Gallery, Woodbrook. This self-taught mixed media artist often depicts women in her work, addressing issues of beauty, stereotypes and empowerment especially in relation to the representation of black bodies. Here, McCarthy again puts a spotlight on the black female, presenting her as a divinity—as both a saint and a jumbie—with intercessory power.
