Jemma Grundon

Artist Statement

Jemma Grundon is a Bristol-based artist, working from Jamaica Street Artist studios, in Stokes Croft. Graduating from Bath Spa University in 2007 with a Fine Art degree, she has since completed an MA Artist Teacher and Contemporary Practice from Goldsmiths University in London in 2014.


Her work is inspired by our transient and ephemeral encounters and experiences; a momentary dialogue with a stranger, bubbles being blown, a shaft of sunlight bursting through the gap in the curtains. An underlying association with nature runs throughout her work, and through the use of this familiar imagery her work helps us to question and consider how we might experience, acknowledge and remember an impermanent and transient encounter.
