Current Issue

Bahamian Artist Maxwell Taylor created a suite of vibrant silk screen prints during a recent residency at the University of Tampa. In this issue we have published a conversation with him as well as some of the images he made here, and we have illuminated the issue with other contemporary art from the Bahamas.  We find a kindred spirit in the work, perhaps partly because of some shared experiences of climate, bright sunshine, sparkling water, and sandy beaches that produce imagery tropical in feeling. But we are also drawn to the deeper significance and relevance represented in Taylor’s iconic woodcut, “The Struggle.” Recognizing that the suffering is unequally distributed, we still struggle with personal and social inequalities and injustice. We struggle to recognize the causes and to find solutions.
