Roisin Jones is a multidisciplinary artist who combines photography, sculpture, poetry, and performance to embark on a profound exploration of identity, racial injustice, and the histories of the Caribbean diaspora. Her work captures the unique experiences of young black people, while her ongoing projects delve into themes such as isolation and grief. Drawing inspiration from folklore, Afro-futurism, black feminist ideologies, and intersectionality, Jones consistently challenges norms and pushes boundaries, creating spaces where audiences can critically engage with stories that have long been marginalised in history.
Through her art, Jones aims to foster healing and connection. She believes that within the shadows lie the fragments of what is lost, waiting to be found, and that storytelling has the power to mend brokenness. Her research is centred on the re-imagining of Afro-Caribbean and multi-ethnic cultural heritage through the creation of sacred objects and spaces in contemporary art. Jones is driven by a desire to celebrate the stories that connect us, to traverse the realms of grief and exhilaration, and to illuminate the unknown. Her work is imbued with a haptic sensibility, honouring the essence of objects and drawing from her rich heritage, and engaging with ancient works from African cultures, indigenous Caribbean traditions, and global cultures, Jones aims to highlight their importance in forming identities.
