Jemma Grundon

Born 1985. Completed a degree in Fine Art at Bath Spa University and MA Artist Teacher and Contemporary Practice at Goldsmiths University. Currently based at Jamaica Street Artist studios in Bristol.


My work concerns the ephemeral and the transient. I am interested in how impermanent encounters might be experienced, acknowledged and remembered. I do not depict the reality of these encounters, but I often use recognisable imagery that is evocative and symbolic of the world we live in. Using familiar signifiers to depict and examine the world, I create work which can appear simultaneously both familiar and unfamiliar, both beautiful and unsettling, there and not there.
