Cydne Jasmin Coleby, Ya Best Friend Fa Da Night, 2023. Acrylic, Decorative Paper, Sand, Glass Beads, Photo Collage and Glitter on Wood Panel 48 x 60 in. (101.6 x 76.2 cm.)
The Bahamian Cydne Jasmin Coleby opens her first solo show at TERN Gallery with “One Of The Boys”, on view from November 30th to January 13th. For its final show of the year, TERN invited the digital and mixed media collage artist to permeate the entire space for the exhibition, exploring the dynamic of bars in local communities of the region.
Self-reflection and the unpacking of childhood or family ordeals have always been an intrinsic aspect of Coleby’s art-making. For this exhibition, she takes still images from video as the basis for her new paintings and examines her family history, trying to understand both her father’s own childhood, the cyclical repetition of certain behaviors, and the need for escapism and self-medication.
The artist’s face and body are common motifs in her artwork and in this new collection, she hovers at the margins — inserting herself as a viewer, eavesdropper, or participant on the sidelines.
