DescriptionIn Tobago, there is the legend of the Mermaids and Fairymaids. The mermaids are male and live deep in the ocean. The Fairymaids are female and live in caves behind waterfalls, the deep parts of the river or back in the day, they could be spotted by a waterwheel. Fairymaids are said to be quite beautiful with long, flowing hair. They also have a reputation for stealing men's shadows, leaving them quite demented. To restore his shadow, one must go to the river or cave with his friends, family and plead to the water fro his shadow to be returned. Once this is done, he's to leave the water's edge and never look back.
Rebecca Foster, San Fernando Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement Rebecca Foster created her first painting when she was 4 years old. This large, abstract oil painting hangs in her studio as a testament to her love of fine art. She made her debut in 2008 with a solo exhibition at More Vino, Trinidad then in 2010, bid farewell to Bahrain, her home for one year, with a sold out, one night show. In 2011, an experiment with line, form and colour bloomed into a vibrant Trinidad Carnival series. A series that has helped define Rebecca’s artistic style and has revamped her interest in the water colour medium.
