Jemma lives in Brighton UK Jemma is a Visual Artist working between Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Painting and Camera-less Photography
My practice delves into the essence of the ageing female body through sculptural and print works that transcend traditional representations. My aim is to provoke contemplation and spark dialogue around questions of identity by reconfiguring photographic materials in ways that go beyond mere representation. With a renewed attention to light sensitivity and the exploration of resemblance, my practice searches into the depths of the ageing female experience. Photographic Lumen prints are translated into sculptural forms, creating tangible objects that evoke the physicality and presence of the body. By manipulating and recontextualizing photographic materials, I challenge the boundaries of traditional mediums, inviting viewers to question preconceived notions of identity. Similarly, in my print works, I'm exploring the interplay between line, texture, and human form. Through careful manipulation of materials and processes, I aim to evoke a sense of depth and resonance, capturing the elusive nature of the ageing female body and its multifaceted aspects.
