An Ancient Soul – The Art of Philip Moore

In this 1995 feature Philip Moore speaks expansively of the Spirit taught philosophy that underpins his creations. Dr. Adeoloa James, a Nigerian residing and teaching in Guyana gives her insight into the atavistic connection Moore has to his heritage of African Spirituality and which is always at the heart of his art.

Dr. Denis Williams, then Director of Art, recognizes Moore’s status as a great Caribbean adaptation of a great African tradition and clarifies the technological and iconological aspects of his work. Errol Ross Brewster, a Guyanese multi-media artist, teacher and cultural activist, as director of this feature, points in the visual treatment to Moore’s transmogrification of ordinary everyday experience which enriches us all, and reveals him as the artist to best mirror a most magical apprehension of the world that as Caribbean people we all can relate to.

Ah We Ting – Mashramani – by Errol Ross Brewster

Ah We Ting – Mashramani

Ah We Ting is a short feature looking back over time at the celebrations of Mashramani – a Guyanese festival brought into being by the political directorate at the time of the establishment of Republican status to nurture and develop the fusing of the diverse cultural strains of the people. The name is taken from the Lokono word Mashramehi which means celebration after successful cooperative work, something which continues to elude the nation as a whole but which hardly, if at all, dampens the festivities.

‘Ah Rupununi Feeling’, is about life and landscape at a place on the northwestern shoulder of South America the size of Scotland, in the English speaking state of Guyana.

Stretching two hundred miles, it is rolling grasslands disappearing to the horizon from the foothills of the mountains.

It is a conundrum…a place where nothing is as it appears, and everything is as it has always been, with the mountains among the oldest in di worl!. It’s a landscape imbued with the magic of the Makusi… it’s life contending with the suffering soaked soils of a vast, resource rich region and it’s singular economic preoccupation with cow slaughter…moooooooooooooooooo
