Born in Reading in 1978, Jemimah Patterson completed her foundation at Central St. Martin’s College of Art & Design in London between 1997 and 1998. She continued on to complete her BA (Hons) at the Ruskin School of Drawing & Fine Art at the University of Oxford from 1998 to 2001.

 

Jemimah's work is heavily influenced by the fact that she is one of a conjoined set of identical twins. This twinning creates resonant psychological dimensions that are reflected in her compositions, for instance paired or mirrored motifs recur throughout her work, often creating surrogate double portraits. Her magnetic attraction to doubled imagery emerges in her manipulation of shadows and mirrors in her latest body of work.
