The National Museum recently received a new addition to its collection of more than 300 artworks thanks to a donation by Artist Kerwin G. Ebanks of one of his own pieces, titled “I am Caymanian PERIOD!”
“I’m happy I could contribute to the record of our culture,” said Mr. Ebanks.
The artwork, created in 2015, is an acrylic of canvas with applied printed paper. It is multidimensional geometrical piece with some texture, which the gallery calls “dramatic, bold, brave and provocative.”
“Kerwin’s choice of subject matter is stimulating, powerful, relevant, and timeless. It is a statement of social consciousness,” said Debra Barnes-Tábora, curation and collections manager for the National Museum.
“As a mixed media piece, the work is equally important for its departure from traditional works by Caymanian artists. We are grateful to be the recipient of such a creative art piece.”
