Benjamin Jenner

Benjamin’s work investigates the fabrication and construction of geometric environments. The practice outputs offer proposals or diagrammatic descriptions via drawing and painting, of a traversable space rather than one fully realized. A sophisticated play with color and surface/ground illicit ideas of the monumental and prompt a navigation through space that incorporates a range of scales, often spilling over from 2D into accompanying maquette and model.

Benjamin Jenner lives and works in London. He studied BA Fine Art at Wimbledon College of Art, University of the Arts London and received MFA Fine Art from the Slade. Jenner won the Red Mansion Art Prize in 2008.
