Jemma's practice investigates our fading heritage often exploring spaces that have been abandoned and left to fall into disrepair. She is interested in recording our heritage before it is obliterated from our landscapes and our past culture becomes lost.
Drawing underpins her practice and informs her printmaking processes. Specialising in etching and stone lithography, these methods resonate with the subjects Jemma comes to find herself documenting. They use an enforced decay, whereby acids erode metal and physically alter the surface of a limestone, echoing with the natural decay of the architectural forms she draws.
