Mixed-media artist Ebony G.ย  Patterson uses strong imagery and experience in video, painting and installation to engage with Jamaica’s controversial subcultural conversations in dancehall, bleaching and masculinity. In her work Christ and Co. featured at the 2010 Biennial she placed dancehall artistes on an alter and adorned them with gaudy accessories while, in her latest piece on show at the current National Biennial, she uses video to explore gender and genderless forms. She was recently named on Huffington Post’s “Top 30 black artists under 40.” โ€”Erin Hansen
