Samere Tansley participated in the recently closed Jamaica Biennial 2017 with the painting Banana Red. Here is a short feature:
Samere Tansley was born in 1944, in Worcestershire, England. She attended the Stourbridge and Birmingham Schools of Art and Goldsmith College in London, England. In 1985 she received a silver medal in the annual Jamaica Festival exhibition and since 1975 she has exhibited extensively both locally and abroad. Tansley’s work is inspired from the visual richness of the Jamaican environment and people, and reflects the abundance of the land and the sharp contrasts of light. She is best known for her still lifes and iconic portraiture of Jamaican women. She lives in St Andrew, Jamaica.
