Jennifer Hooper is a London based visual artist who travels regularly in an exploratory way to inform her practice. She studied drawing at the Royal Drawing School, painting and photography at Camberwell College of Art and anatomy at University College London. She has exhibited extensively in this country and overseas.

Inspired by the natural world and our place within it, Hooper’s paintings are careful observations of the relationship between beauty and melancholy and darkness and light. There is a dialogue with the romantic era where imagery and process holds historical significance. Also engaged with the contemporary artists’ role in cross-disciplinary collaboration, the artist has worked with NGOs and conservationists on international projects, highlighting and responding to environmental concerns.

“Inspired by Animalia and the natural world, my paintings are careful observations of opposites - the relationship between beauty and melancholy and that of darkness and light. I strive to depict the duality of nature and our changing relationship to it. I’m engaged with the contemporary artists’ role in cross-disciplinary collaborations between creatives, conservationists and scientists; how this can communicate about and impact upon understanding of environmental concerns.”

Conifer Cone with two Monarch Butterflies is a new painting, and the first to come out of a recent research project. Jennifer has been working with conservation biologists to study and document the monarch butterfly at its overwintering habitat in Mexico. The Monarch Butterfly has a phenomenal migratory pattern, every year travelling thousands of miles from Canada and California to the mountainous oyamel fir forest in the state of Michoacán in Mexico. Jennifer’s aim is for the research to inform a larger body of artwork that will present, not only the wonder, beauty, strength and fragility of the Monarch but also address the threats that face its staggering and now tenuous migration.
