One Thousand Mes
Sarah Knights (whose work also appears on the covers of this issue) is a Trinidadian artist. She holds degrees from the John S. Donaldson Technical Institute (visual communication) and the University of the West Indies (visual arts). Her formal training helps her use art as a means of self-expression and healing. After graduating, she began work on a body of mixed-media paintings, using herself as the main subject to discuss issues of identity and intersectionality. Her paintings reflect both the present and the past and investigate race, gender, beauty standards, class, and religion, including how these are influenced by Western mainstream media and popular culture.
