From a very young age Coleby has felt comfortable disassociating herself from her body, seeing it in its truest form, as it is seen by others. She believes such a perspective ultimately leads to acceptance. Coleby believes that once one completely accepts their physical extension in space, an examination of one’s mentality awaits. 

Coleby’s forays into psychoanalytic thinking have led to an interest in the transformative effects of trauma; she studies the relationships that we form with the seismic emotional occurrences of our lifetimes - trying to determine what informs our personality and what defines it. Ultimately her view is a pessimistic one: Coleby doubts our capacity for closure, viewing and capturing every traumatic experience as a blot on the copybook of character.

Cydne Jasmin Coleby was born in Nassau in The Bahamas in 1993. She attended The College of The Bahamas (now University) where she received her associate degree in art in 2012. Afterwards, she went on to work as a freelance graphic designer, specializing in brand design. She has worked with numerous companies including Adworks, The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas, Poinciana Paper Press, Popopstudios International Center for the Visual Arts, The Island House and served as Creative Arts Design and Communications. Manager for The Current: Baha Mar Gallery and Art Center. Coleby also featured in Drawn Together, our online charity exhibition.
