MARINNA SHAREEF, No Time To Weight

 

MARINNA SHAREEF, TRINIDAD

“Mahrinnart” can be considered as Marinna Shareef’s alter ego, confident but aware of her

feelings as someone being treated for bipolar disorder. In emulating “Mahrinnart”, she distorts

self-portraits to visually make sense of the thoughts and feelings she experiences. The two

extremes, mania and depression are explored, as well as the combination of the two referred to

as mixed episodes through both digital and physical media. Vivid colors are manipulated to

attract viewers to dark subjects, highlighting manic depressive experiences with rainbows, glitter

and confetti. It is not her aim to not to glorify the illness, but to use a surrealistic approach to

transport others into a world that isn't theirs, so that they can better understand hers. ‘Mahrinna’

has completed her Fine Arts degree at the University of the West Indies and has exhibited in the

National Museum and Art Gallery of Trinidad and Tobago in the ‘UWI Degree Show,’ and in the

‘Emerging Artists’ exhibition during Carifesta 2019.
