Jennifer Argo is a visual artist currently living and working in Glasgow, Scotland. She comes from the North East of Scotland and studied Photographic Electronic Media at Gray’s School of Art, graduating in 2010.
She is now based at Glasgow Sculpture Studios and employs a multi-disciplinary practice comprised of sculpture, illustration, photography and installation. She works closely with architects, designers, graphic artists and hosts workshops regularly with charitable arts organisations.
Her work explores an amalgamation of natural systems, using the patterns that exist in the physical universe as a metaphor for metaphysical relationships, and community as a connected whole.
She creates meticulous hyper-detailed illustrative works, slowing down the drawing process to create emphasis on a consideration of time that extends beyond the here-and-now purview of our current economic and sociopolitical climate. These works explore themes of chaos and order, space and time in the natural world, and their parallels to anthropological relations that exist within sociological and political dynamics.
Along with Architect Baxendale (Lee Ivett), she has just been awarded a commendation from the GIA (Glasgow Institute of Architects), for a sanctuary space they created in a Stalled Spaces site run by arts organization Wave Particle in Glasgow. She recently took part in Pick Me Up Selects at Somerset House in London, exhibiting at Pick Me Up festival. Alongside architect Baxendale (Lee Ivett) she led a team of students, architects, artists and creatives in the build of a sanctuary space as part of Hello Wood’s 2015 Project Village design festival in Hungary.
