As a Jamaican living in the diaspora Rachael Minott explores identity while occupying multiple nationalities. Minott works to examine the national representation of Jamaica through the medium of sculpture, painting and print. By referencing symbols of Jamaican national identity such as its coat of arms, national heroes and traditional dishes, Minott constructs reflections on Jamaica’s history as a country and its decisions as a nation.  Thinking about Jamaicais mediation on Minott’s work to date, which is placed within the context of her personal art collection of Jamaican prints, paintings and photographs. Amongst the pieces exhibited are works by Edna Manley and Albert Huie as well as the photography of Owen Minott, the artist’s late grandfather, all of whom are represented in Jamaica’s National Art Collection. By considering the influence of these works on Jamaica’s artistic landscape the artist investigates the legacy of historic events and politics explored in her work.
