New Featured Artist: Jennifer Jokhoo
Jennifer Jokhoo is a South-East London based printmaker and painter. She is primarily interested in architectural structures; the development of construction and the transitional phases of the built environment over a period of time.
Over the past 2 plus years, Jennifer has been depicting architectural forms, with particular reference to the regeneration of London Bridge and the ‘Shard.‘ She has documented the building in transition focusing on its changing layers and shapes. She is especially interested in the recurring geometry, patterns, the effects of colour, light and textures of building materials.
Photography and drawings are used as a starting point for the design and execution of Jennifer’s lino cut prints and etchings. Each limited edition print is created using high quality intaglio oil based ink and Somerset satin 350 gram paper. A hydraulic press is used to create evenly printed images. All lino cuts are produced by hand from the initial drawings to the intricate cutting, inking and print editions.
Originally from the Kapiti Coast, New Zealand, Jennifer has been in the United Kingdom for 12 years. She studied Fine art and majored in Painting and Printmaking at Canterbury University School of Fine Art in New Zealand. In 1998 she went on to complete a Diploma in Secondary Teaching.
Since qualifying she has followed a career in art education and has taught in New Zealand, Spain and the United Kingdom. Jennifer currently teaches art and design part-time in South Kensington.
After honing her etching skills at Byam Shaw in 2008, Jennifer joined the londonprintstudio to experiment further with intaglio and relief printing techniques. Her studio space is in Nunhead. Jennifer uses londonprintstudio to make and edition prints.
