Jennifer Hooper is a London based visual artist who travels regularly in an exploratory way to inform her practice. She studied drawing at the Royal Drawing School, painting and photography at Camberwell College of Art and anatomy at University College London. She has exhibited internationally and has work in numerous private collections.
Inspired by the natural world and our place within it, Hooper’s paintings are careful observations of the relationship between beauty and melancholy and darkness and light.
There is a dialogue with the romantic era where imagery and process hold historical significance. Also engaged with the contemporary artists’ role in cross-disciplinary collaboration, the artist has worked with NGOs and conservationists on international projects, highlighting and responding to environmental concerns.
'Taking inspiration from nature, I carefully observe relationships between opposites. Often the animal or the animal encounter is a starting point.'
