Here is another feature from our Jamaica Biennial 2017 archives.
Paula Daley was born in 1968, in St Andrew, Jamaica. She attended the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, where she was awarded two diplomas with honours in Painting and Sculpture. She also attained an MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore USA and a post-graduate Diploma in Arts Education from Edna Manley College. Her work has been shown in Curator’s Eye III (2008) and the Biennial exhibitions of the National Gallery of Jamaica, as well as at the Rex Nettleford Arts Conference (2011 & 2013) and School of Visual Arts Faculty Exhibitions (2010-2016) at the CAG[e], Edna Manley College. She is currently the Head of the Sculpture Department and the Acting Assistant Director of the School of Visual Arts. Daley’s current body of work explores the subject matter of slavery and human trafficking, focusing on “the emotions that are absorbed and still reverberate in the spaces once inhabited by slaves.” She lives in Kingston, Jamaica.
