Fieldnotes Jamaica is a new series of work by artist Tracey Thorne made in response to the global climate crisis by reflecting on the environmental challenges facing the Island of Jamaica.

This new body of work was created during the pandemic, a period that provided the artist with more time to look closely at the world which surrounds us and reflect on one of the defining issues of our time.
