Laura Facey, a Jamaican sculptor, whose work spans 40 years, was trained at The Jamaica School of Art. Her most significant commission is the controversial REDEMPTION SONG, a monument to emancipation commissioned by the Government of Jamaica in 2002. THEIR SPIRITS GONE BEFORE THEM, an installation of a sixteen-foot cottonwood canoe housing hundreds of the miniature resin figures of the REDEMPTION SONG monument, is also a significant work.

In 2006 Facey was awarded the silver Musgrave medal and in 2010, she won the Aaron Matalon Award for best in show at the National Biennial in Jamaica.
