About Jemma Appleby
(b.1987 London) Appleby's drawings amplify each environment's 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. Appleby has exhibited at the Royal Academy, London; The Royal West of England Academy, Bristol; Jerwood Visual Arts, London; Griffin Gallery, London and The Mall Galleries, London to name a few. Appleby is the recipient of the Chateau de Blavou Residancy in association with Forum des Arts, Normandy, July 2013; Meantime Residency in association with The Open West, March 2012; The Arts Club Prize for Finest Drawing, National Open Art Competition Chichester, October 2010; Royal Society of British Artists residency award at The British School at Rome July 2010 and The Haworth Trust Award for Painting 2009.
