Roots - Laura Facey


On a visit to Devon House, one of the premier Historic Sites in Kingston, Jamaica I came across a magnificent piece of artwork. The sculpture, placed at the entry to the gardens of Devon House, appears at first glance to be corten or rusted metal, resembling industrial waste left out to weather. Roots as the works are called, are actually salvaged from a massive tree trunk, and bear their own story of being carried by hand from the inner countryside of St. Ann.

Artist, Laura Facey
