Jemima Kirke was  born  in  London  in  1985.  She  received  her  BFA  in  painting  from 
the  Rhode  Island  School  of  Design  in  2008.  She  currently  resides  and  works  in 
Brooklyn, NY.
Skylight  Projects  is  pleased  to  present  A  Brief  History,  an  exhibition  of  new  oil 
paintings  and  multimedia  drawing  and  collage  by Jemima Kirke(b.  1985,  London, 
UK). Kirke was raised in New York City and received her BFA in Painting from RISD 
in  2008.  Inverting  the  tradition  of  oil  portraiture,  Kirke  explores  the  multi-faceted 
layers of character within each of the models and friends who sit for. As viewers we 
are made distinctly aware of the painter’s hand and controlling gaze—we are left to 
confront uncomfortable truths about ourselves as voyeurs as well as about the masks 
and performances we engage in daily.
Drawing  on  influences  as  varied  as  Edouard  Manet  and  Lucian  Freud,  Kirke  stays 
firmly  grounded  in  a  painterly  tradition  aiming  to  dissect  her  own  gaze  and  her 
models own representations of themselves while underlining the staged relationship 
that  is  created  with  her  subject  within  the  studio.  Kirke  works  quickly,  and  without 
preliminary sketches, allowing the painting to unfold in real time—her canvas yields 
an image of this live experience between artist and subject.
