Born in England to West Indian parents, Arlene Case spent most of her childhood in Trinidad. Her rich Caribbean heritage is evident in her works, which express pride in and affection for the traditions and values of her people.
The paintings of Arlene Case take several forms yet a familiar thread runs through them. Whether she recreates scenes of a simpler past, or of a more complex contemporary existence, whether she uses bold or fine lines, strong or subdued colors, textured or smooth canvases, she expresses the human need for compassion, belonging and stability. She aims to put her subjects in the finest light, and transmits a sensitivity and warmth that allows the viewer to identify, regardless of background, culture or status.
Her artistry graces the walls of galleries throughout the United States, Canada, England and the Caribbean. Her work has also been displayed on popular American programs, such as "E.R", "Fresh Prince of Belair", "Living Single" and "Sweet Justice."
