Tina Jenkins

Tina was runner up in the Marmite Painting prize in 2010 and was featured in Two and a Half Dimensions curated by Marcus Harvey at Pangolin in 2011. She had a solo show at studio 1:1 in 2012. She was awarded the Owen Ridley Prize at the University of Reading for an outstanding MFA project and is the recipient of a bursary from Reading University to research her PhD in 2014. Tina’s work plays on and around paintings historical constructs and limitations. She re-conceptualises Painting as a Hysterical act suggesting this can mobilise it as an affirmative force of thought.
