Originally from Kingston Jamaica, Crystal Marshall's paintings pay homage to her life's experiences rooted in cultural disparities in the modern-day African diaspora. Her distinctive personal style emanates isolation, self reflection and expresses the spirit and atmosphere of the black consciousness in efforts to reconcile its relationship with true identity and image. Symbolic motifs such as wool, thorns, hair, figurative and allegorical representations are just some of the visual tools used to express displacement, hostility, victimization, exclusion, oppression and withdrawal. As the artist explains, “I am a storyteller and I welcome the viewer to be a part of this visual journey, to share in my experience.”
