#TBT | Mallica “Kapo” Reynolds Exhibition
#TBT | Nationl Gallery West exhibited Selections from the the National Collection: Mallica “Kapo” Reynolds in August 2017.
The Jamaican Intuitive artist and charismatic Revivalist Bishop Mallica “Kapo” Reynolds $was born in 1911 in Byndloss, a rural St. Catherine community some thirty miles from Kingston. Many of Kapo’s paintings and sculptures depict his cultural milieu, including portraits of those around him and scenes from daily life. He was also a fine landscape painter and he was fond of depicting the environment of his childhood, the hills and valleys of St. Catherine’s interior. Other works are more spiritual in nature and were clearly inspired by his visions and practices as a Zion Revivalist leader. Some of his works have erotic overtones and joyfully celebrate the nude human body and sexuality.
