About

Jamie Limond  BA (Hons) MA MSc HNDip IEng MIET

Statement

My artwork is dominated by a heightened sense of mortality, borne out of receiving a devastating diagnosis. I investigate the human condition at its fringes, being broken. I explore our responses to existence and temporality, considering how these states impact on the human condition. Beyond this I am interested in philosophy and how it may help me as an artist to create art that communicates most authentically. I am a postgraduate researcher, working towards a doctorate in Fine Art.

My practice is informed with an engineer’s understanding of materials and a keen appreciation for art history; employing a multidisciplinary approach with no particular preference to one medium.

My influences include Joseph Beuys, Anselm Kiefer, Christian Boltanski, and Anya Gallaccio.

Born in 1974, I live and work in Suffolk, England.
