Jamaica Biennial 2017 – Juried Artists: Greg Bailey

Greg Bailey – Colonial Legacies (2016)

Another feature from our Jamaica Biennial 2017 archives. Greg Bailey was one of the winners of the 2017 Dawn Scott Memorial Award.

Greg Bailey was born in 1986, in Trelawny, Jamaica. He attended the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, where he was awarded a BFA degree in Painting in 2011. Bailey’s exhibitions have included the Jamaica 50th Anniversary Launch (2012), Stuttgart, Germany; and Social Atrocities (2014), Olympia Gallery, Kingston Jamaica, as well as the Jamaica Biennial 2014, Young Talent 2015 and Explorations IV: Masculinities (2015), which were held at the National Gallery of Jamaica. His work explores issues of race, history and society, using academic painting techniques and image-making conventions, which are referenced ironically. Bailey lives in St Catherine, Jamaica.
