Painter Jacqueline Gopie was born in Kingston, Jamaica and now lives and works in Coral Gables, Florida.
Focusing on idyllic scenes of black and brown children enjoying seaside leisure and playtime she subversively challenges negative media stereotypes of people of color. Her intent is to rewire the viewer’s learned negative physiological response to racial differences by introducing and insisting upon alternative positive contexts, narratives and visual imagery.
