Six emerging artists are celebrating coming into
the light in a group art exhibition called Emerge
which opens on September 17.
Sarah Burrows, Annelie Solis, Gabriella D Abreau,
Shauna Narine, Halcian Pierre and AJ Rogers are the
participating artists, whose work reflects diverse media
and styles. The exhibition opens with a reception at
the Art Society of T&T on September 17 and continues
during September 18-22 from 10 am-5 pm. Here is
some information on each artist:
Sarah Burrows is a self-taught mixed media artist,
specialising in coloured pencils and acrylics. At 15, she
won her first art competition. Her work On The Wall,
Off The Wall was featured for almost two years on
the Oval wall. She held her first solo exhibition in Jan-
uary 2012. She participates in seasonal local art and
craft shows. Her work is currently displayed in the
Gabriella D Abreau is a fine artist and illustrator.
Her love for illustrative design and storytelling has
influenced her style in her fine art paintings. Her bold,
colourful and stylised painting palette is dramatic, as
it tries to capture the viewer s imagination. She com-
bines abstract elements, pattern and figurative forms
with brilliant bold Caribbean colours to carry her
viewers away to their own imagined reality. Her work
celebrates beauty, colour, the female form and the
Shauna Gabrielle Narine is a self-taught acrylic
artist born and raised in San Fernando. She began
painting while living in Europe pursuing her Masters
degree in marine biology and was inspired greatly by
Gaudi s work and Europe s unpolished architecture.
Her trip to Thailand inspired her to use the calabash---
some of the street art there was on calabash and
coconut shells. She returned to Trinidad in 2010 and
has never stopped painting. She wishes the viewer to
experience art as a form of magic with no mistakes,
only strokes of paint on something that was once
plain and has now been made to shine.
Halcian Pierre was born in Woodbrook. A Caribbean
Neo Pop artist with a great love of cooking, this former
St Francois Girl admits that some of her best times
at school were spent in art class. Her other skills of
writing, editing and acting have led to other work as
an ad copywriter, actress and voiceover artist. Halcian
enjoys creating vividly colourful acrylic works on can-
vases in all sizes. Her favourite subjects are women,
especially those wearing vibrant and detailed head
wraps. She also sees beauty in the foods we eat, the
places we visit and the clothes we wear.
AJ Rogers is a young artist from Mayaro. Nature s
blue skies, lush greens and many shades and hues are
what inspire him. AJ thinks of himself as a free spirit.
AJ says, "The thing about art is, you see a piece of
work and you go Wow! How did they know that
adding one little thing would take it to a whole other
level? Sometimes the artist has a planned method to
create their work, but then you start and a vibe hits
you and magic happens; you realise you re just the
vessel and art creates itself. Art allows for self-discovery
and as an artist you bring things to the foreground
(that some people take for granted) for a point of view
they never thought of, showing life as art."

Art by Annelie Solis.
Annelie Solis has worked with a variety of different styles and media, but it
was walking a spiritual path that led her to find a niche in fantastical depictions
of mystical beings and personifications of spiritual themes. In her work and in
life she says she hopes to raise awareness of beauty and divinity, and uplift the
human spirit, guided by a dedicated pursuit of yogic knowledge and higher
