For Jennifer Binnie, painting is a natural form of expression, she sees it as a personal language which she has developed throughout her life. Born to creative parents she grew up in semi rural East Sussex and enjoyed 5 years studying fine art in Eastbourne and Portsmouth. Jennifer is a co founder of the Neo naturist cabaret/ performance art group which evolved out of the 1980’s London art/fashion/ squat /club scene. The Neo naturists were both part of and a reaction against this scene.
Since the late 1980’s, Jennifer has lived in East Sussex where she continues to paint on canvases, objects, walls and bodies. Recent exhibitions and events have been in collaboration with Christine Binnie and Wilma Johnson as the Neo naturists, with Christine Binnie as ‘The Binnie Sisters’ and last year there was an exhibition of collaborative work with Andrew Logan. Jennifer’s current work is based in her studio in Hastings and is drawing on reflective memories inspired by personal photographs dating back to the 1970’s and her interest in nature and animals, life’s cycles, the real world and other worlds.
In September 2020, Jennifer will be exhibiting and curating at Towner in Eastbourne alongside her sister, Christine Binnie.
