Jennifer is an artist, printmaker and architect living in London, making images and 3d works.
Jennifer originally studied Mathematics at Warwick university, but after completing her degree went on to become an architect where she worked for a range of practices. Her interest in image making and specifically printmaking was then developed by completing an MA in Fine Art (Printmaking) at Camberwell UAL. in 2021.. Jennifer is currently part of the Part of MASS Turps Sculpture program 2022/23 and alongside this helps manage Bainbridge Print Studios (open access print studios for artists and designers.)
Jennifer is interested in making images, forms and spaces through print. and sculpture. Her two dimensional works utilise a range of print processes such as silk screen, cyanotype and intaglio.. Her sculpture work includes works in metal, wood, concrete and plaster.
Jennifer is particularly drawn to mapping - exploring both physical locations and psychological spaces to construct new landscapes that question the nature of our relationship to the environment and attempt to articulate the disjunction of lived space. Her work explores ways in which these landscapes can communicate ideas about scale, the correspondence between the macro and the micro whilst inhabiting a liminal space. A preoccupation between the shifting nature of the real and the virtual runs through the work. The iterative digital and physical process of the making allude to the impact of digital media on our perceptions of space, time and embodiment.
The grid is a recurring theme within her work, drawing on its references to measurement, construction, occupation, the ghostly lines of Euclidean geometry and its counterpoint to a more complex actuality and non-linear nature (the ‘mesh’) of the physical environment. Jennifer is also interested in what lies ‘underfoot’, the ground and the layers of strata, geological and living organisms that remain largely concealed beneath our feet. Her works in concrete and plaster explore the imprints of past occupation embodied in the textures of the ground. They attempt to capture the tension between a man made material language and fragments of natural disruption and fissure that seep through the everyday.
