Nikolai Noel: Angels at Attention

nikolai noel: angels at attention

Angels at Attention: Ye Shall Know Them, Them that Sold Doves, by the Trinidadian artist Nikolai Noel; from the solo show Forgiveness. "The purpose of my work is to question the way we structure our civilisation," Noel says, and in these paintings and drawings he playfully borrows the iconography of traditional Christianity in order to ask awkward questions about the relations between organised religion, the colonial project, and the Caribbean's post-colonial dilemmas. Forgiveness opened at the InterAmericas Gallery, CCA7, on 17 April and runs until 11 May, 2007.
