About the artist

Jennifer Binnie studied art at Eastbourne College of Art and Design and Portsmouth Polytechnic in the late 70s - early 80s. During the early 80s, she moved to London to share a squat with her partner, Grayson Perry, sister Christine Binnie, and artist Cerith Wyn Evans among others. Here she was able to devote most of her time to developing her painting alongside performance activities with the Neo-naturists, the performance art/cabaret group to which she was a central part along with Christine Binnie and Wilma Johnson.

When the squat ended in the late 80’s, Binnie moved back to her native East Sussex to live the rural idyll. Paintings from this time are clearly influenced by her passion for nature, animals and the Sussex landscape. Her work continues to expand beyond the canvas onto many surfaces of her home which was influenced early on by a visit to Charleston Farmhouse. Jennifer Binnie continues to live and work in Jevington, East Sussex.

Studio Voltaire has been supporting artists for over twenty years, through our renowned programme of exhibitions, performances, events and education projects as well as providing affordable studios.

We have gained a reputation for championing both emerging and underrepresented artistic practices, often at key stage in the artist’s career. These have included Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Phyllida Barlow, Ruth Ewan, Elizabeth Price, Jo Spence, Joanne Tatham & Tom O’Sullivan, Richard Slee and Cathy Wilkes.

The gallery also provides an important UK platform for international artists, often providing them their first-ever presentation in the UK. These have included Nairy Baghramian, Thea Djordjadze, Nicole Eisenman, Judith Hopf, Paulina Olowska and Henrik Olesen.
