"Grand Lady of Calypso, Calypso Rose", was filmed in my house on Monday the 16h of Feb.  I made a sculpture of her  in 1988 and looked for her on every occasion in Trinidad. Having her now actually in my studio was an overwhelming experience. She will place the bronze statue of her in Tobago, she said. Thank you Rose.

I have returned from my trip to Nigeria and the Sacred Groves in Oshogbo, where I visited with Susanne Wenger.

Chris ApplebyOn my way to Nigeria I stayed over in London where I met with Chris Appleby, one of my favourite painters, whom I have not seen since 1972, when I was teaching at Wolverhampton Polytechnic, where he was a student. I visited his studio in London, and admired his work on Lillith and the detective..

Susanne Wenger: wrote: " Nowadays we are sending signals from horizon to horizon, to those who have been born into totally different destinies. Between us lies the rubble of destroyed cathedrals, we must allow Evil as well as the indestructible values to decay and so to become fertile again. There lies the vitality of  A. - and mine as well."

(Adunni, a portrait of Susanne Wenger)


Susanne Wenger died January 12, 2009

Susanne Wenger, 93 years old, from Austria, has created the holy shrines for the Yoruba Orishas on the ruins of old ones. She is an Olorisha, a priestess. She was sent to do the shrines. Her inspiration came from the river the trees and the clouds, the ancient preachers. The flowing forms of her shrines go back into the earth and partly grow into the clouds. Heaven and earth mirrors in these cement and clay forms.
