Jemima Wyman

Jemima Wyman is an interdisciplinary artist based in Brisbane and Los Angeles. Her most recent work focuses on patterns and masking used by marginalized groups to gain power (aka counterpower). Through this work she investigates visual resistance: specifically camouflage as a formal, social and political strategy in negotiating identity. Wyman’s recent solo exhibitions were held at Sullivan + Strumpf, Sydney (2017); Commonwealth and Council, Los Angeles (2015); Milani Gallery, Brisbane (2015), and at Steve Turner Contemporary, LA (2013). In 2014 the Children’s Art Centre at QAG | GOMA commissioned Wyman to create Pattern Bandits, a five-room interactive installation for children. Wyman’s work has also been included in The National, Carriageworks (2017); Conflict: Contemporary responses to war, UQ Art Museum (2014); Direct Democracy, Monash University Museum of Art (2013); The Unexpected Guest, Liverpool Biennial, UK (2012); Panorama, Casula Powerhouse (2012); Inner Voices, 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Japan (2011); and in the 17th Biennale of Sydney (2010).
