ABOUT ANTILLEAN LACUNAE
“My book, "Antillean Lacunae: points of departure," follows my path over the past several years through several residencies and research on subsistence and industrial rice cultivation, and the culture developed around those doing the labor. The majority of my investigations have taken place in Suriname (South America) and coastal Georgia (Lowcountry). Both regions were heavily influenced by the agricultural knowledge of Africans, both those enslaved and maroons (who escaped the plantations for freedom). The book has a small amount of text, but includes photographs of specific sites, laser cut drawings, letterpress and screen printed images of drawings, with an opening page that is unique in each copy. I am pleased and excited to present this very special editioned artist book.”
