Trinidadian artist Jackie Hinkson held an exhibition at Soft Box Gallery late last year which featured five decades worth of his drawings.  Hinkson was introduced to drawing while at university in the 1960s.  He was struck by the power of that medium as a means to quickly capture a gesture, moment, idea or emotion and it became the dominant form of his work.  Some of the many thousands of drawings he produced over the course of his prolific career were featured, including his portrayals of carnival, sports, street- and family-life.  The show was steeped in nostalgia: seeing his artwork stripped down and rendered largely in black and white ink, pencil and charcoal evoked a simpler time.
