May You Live in Interesting Times
Phillip Thomas (whose work also appears on the covers of this issue) is a Kingston-based artist. He graduated with a BFA from the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts and was awarded a grant from the Cobb Family Foundation and a scholarship from the CHASE Fund to complete a master’s degree at the New York Academy of Art. He graduated at the top of his class and was awarded a fellowship from the academy. Thomas’s work deals with subjects such as the conflicts that derive from colonialism, postcolonialism, and clas-sism. His work poses questions about social identity in ways that challenge many prevailing assumptions in Jamaica. He is represented by the Richard J. Demato Gallery, New York.
