Kerry Jameson trained at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design and the Royal College of Art. Her ceramic and mixed media sculptures have an emotional charge that is presented through a mix of narrative set pieces, tableaux and individual figures. Subjects include historical events and the exploits of folkloric and storybook characters. The predominant aesthetic is that of the uncanny – where objects are recognized as familiar and at the same time experienced as deeply strange.
Jameson has been shortlisted for the prestigious 2013 FIRST@108 Public Art Award at the Royal British Society of Sculptors and the Arts Foundation Ceramics Fellowship in 2011. She took second prize in the Man Photography Awards in 2008. Her work is featured in many private collections and the public collection of the York Museum and Art Gallery.
