Two sections of the suite - The Serena and Ron Jones Collection.

Creole Madonna asserts a current, hybrid Caribbean where identity is plural and interior space multi-cultural. The simply defined self cannot ever fully contain who we are - thus the need to evoke a multiple identity. This work opposes a fragmented status and insists that despite racial, ethnic, religious, generational and all other diverse specificities, there is a shared identity - a hybridity, unconsciously "lived" by millions, both in and outside of the region.
