Featuring Jayne Cherry (Episode No.14)

Jayne Cherry

Performance, drawing, sculpture, textiles and curation are the result of Cherry examining and deconstructing her past experiences. Responding to where she has found herself to be from birth, comfort and reassurance replaced with paralysing distress and bewilderment has provided oceans of memory to be navigated through. Had the choice been hers, she would have remained longer in some places and never visited others. Subjects such as fear, abuse and loneliness are what she now has given herself permission to represent in her work in the hope that this will leave clues for the viewer.

Oonagh McAteer and Zara Lyness, Buoy Park Art is a podcast full of chat about art and artists in Northern Ireland and beyond. Meeting on the Fine Art Master’s Course in Ulster University, Oonagh (BA Photography) and Zara (BA Fine Art) started the podcast as a relaxed platform to encourage inclusive discussions about art and artists and to extend a support network to independent and rural artists at all career stages. The podcasts include invited guests talking about their work and interests and introducing different topics each week, along with the ups and downs of the life or an emerging artist.
