Derek Webster

Description:
Evoking the playful energy of Caribbean carnivals, movement is everywhere in Webster’s sculptures. His dancers bear ecstatic facial expressions, heavy ornamentation, and brightly colored costumes. They often have multiple faces as well—on elbows, fingers, and knees. If you look from different angles, you might notice several different figures in a single sculpture.
