About the Exhibition

The exhibition is open from 29 July to 19 August in the gallery at The Hive New Standard Works please check their website for opening times and events. Free access to the exhibition no booking required.

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.

The exhibition is made up of a set of c-type photographic prints, cyanotypes (including work on some old postcards) and a large print on silk made by the artist.

For more information visit the artist website at www.traceythorne.com or contact the artist at hellotraceythorne@outlook.com.

The project was supported by Arts Council England.
