Sweet Gossip is a collaborative project with artist Sheena Rose, photographer Adrian Richards and writer Natalie McGuire. The project looks at the Pop culture of Barbados and the phrases or comments that Barbadians use when gossiping or in a certain situation.
This project wants to express more of the Barbadian culture than the familiar stereotypes of beaches and sun, and look at the way we Barbadians speak. In the paintings, Sheena Rose references some of the stereotypes and places them within everyday situations in the paintings.
The poster-sized paintings are incorporated into performances in the streets and public spaces in Barbados where the gossip is overheard.
