Since relocating to the UK in 2019 from Trinidad and Tobago, the artist Richard Mark Rawlins has been using his practice as a bridge to his (metaphorically speaking) Afro-Caribbean cousins, with whom, he feels a sense of familiarity and kinship even though they have never met… until now.

Via a series of performative, intimate portraits of people of British Afro-Caribbean heritage drinking tea, combined with frank, conversational, recorded actions he examines the similarities and definitions of what AFRO-CARIBBEAN and Britishness mean.
