Jemima Brown

Jemima Brown uses sculpture, drawing and time based media to create humanoid avatars occupying a zone between the animate and the inanimate. The work explores formal sculptural decision making, suggested narrative and social critique. Graduating from an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art in London in 1995 she has established her practice as an artist working and exhibiting internationally.

As recipient of the 2010/11 Mark Tanner Sculpture Award she showed new work at Standpoint Gallery in London in September 2011. Past awards include a Fulbright Scholarship at the University of California Los Angeles, in 1998, and a Cocheme Fellowship at the University of the Arts, Byam Shaw School of Art in London in 2006.

Curatorial and collaborative projects compliment Browns practice, such as
Enemies of Good Art a collaborative project initiated by photographer Martina Mullaney. Enemies of Good Art have held a series of public meetings at high profile venues including The Whitechapel Gallery and Tate Modern where discussions have centered on how artists might combine the demands of family life with the need to maintain creative practices.
