Jamie George is an artist and writer based in South East London, working with writing, image-making and sculpture. His recent work explores themes of fragmentation, absence and loss and how things break and fall apart, such as objects, place and relationships.
Jamie studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths and sculpture at The Slade School of Fine Art. In 2013, he completed a PhD at Cambridge School of Art — researching how sculptures utilise a 'forgetful memory' — a reflexive process of positing, junking and reimagining relationships to cultural information. He has worked on projects, commissions and exhibitions with Outpost, Glasgow Sculpture Studios, South Kiosk, Jerwood Visual Arts, Drawing Room, SPACE Studios, Showroom, Wysing Arts Centre and Organhaus Gallery (China). In 2012 he was awarded a Gasworks International Fellowship. He was artist-in-resident at Vasl Artist-Collective, Pakistan and in 2014 was awarded a Cocheme Fellowship from Central Saint Martins, UAL, hosted by AIR Studios. In 2018 he was awarded a Jerwood Arts artist bursary. Recent writing has been published by Moxy Magazine and commissioned by Goldsmiths CCA. Jamie is an editor of dreck.co.uk.
