J.D Rooney is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in London. His practice often stems from the complexities regarding feelings of dislocation, longing, and connection from both his Guyanese and Irish heritage; the double-conscious perspective of black and brown bodies in white spaces; and the hope for physical, economic, and political border crossings. On top of ideas regarding the universality of connection, J.D Rooney also finds lightness in the celebration of cultures - particularly in an upcoming series titled Thank you Auntie, which will include sculptures of ice-cream tubs filled with stew.
