L Boyd Prevost was born in Kairi territory in hurricane season, learning from her grandparents how Natural Order as Law records rainfall and drought across millennia of climate change. After an assault led to progressive blindness, that principle taught Boyd nature’s “touch-and-texture” methods from rupestrian engravings combined with her verbal colour memory over 5 years, speaking art. Boyd is grateful Goan American philosopher artist V J Pinto was impressed by her word art articulated “paint-by-description” visions of palimpsests of ancestral memory as presence”, which she hopes to teach to others like herself. He became her artist interpreter these past 7 years.
