Lonley Woman is the name of an art exhibition now underway at the Drift Ocean Terrace Lounge in Holetown.
Artist Kadiejra O’Neal displays her creative skills through a series of water-coloured paintings which depict women in various forms – but always alone.
O’Neal, 21, started her water-coloured creations eight months ago, and she has also dabbled in charcoal, pastels, acrylic and pencil.
She says she has been drawing and painting from the age of three, but Lonely Woman is her first solo exhibition in Barbados.
She is an award-winning artist having won her first bronze when she entered the National Independence Festival of Creative Arts (NIFCA) while at primary school. She went on to win one NIFCA gold, five silvers and two incentive awards.
O’Neal has held numerous exhibitions in Canada, where she is completing her Bachelors in Fine Arts degree at Ryerson University. Now home during her summer break, the former Queen’s College student has seized the opportunity to showcase her stunning creations. The exhibition runs until August 13.
