Jemma Appleby

Jemma’s body of recent drawings amplify each environments simplicity and purity with an aim of clarification. These clean minimal spaces offer little information yet have an authority to describe a magnitude. The non-narrative architectural spaces make enquiries of the memory, knowledge and experience of human space.

Jemma will be showed with Antlers at London Art Fair : Art Project 2015
