Jennifa Nahar Chowdhury
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” - Thomas Merton.
Art is the ultimate form of expression, with the painter’s ideals and aesthetic being imprinted upon their works. As such gallery walls are fun and a great way to showcase a collection of work, but there is nothing like the WOW factor impact of a large work of art in one’s home.
Jennifa was fortunate enough to have been brought up in a South Asian family alongside a northern English cultural heritage. As a result she has often found herself in the position of an outside observer, lacking claims for ownership to any single culture, but thanks to this she has freely collected visual experiences from a huge
range of sources, sometimes with an unknowing or innocent disregard for their original contexts.
After graduating from Nottingham Trent University with a BA (Hons) in Textile Design in 1993. She worked as an in-house designer at a London studio and has regularly freelanced for several agencies in London before moving to Zurich where she received regular commissions for decorative wall art.
Her work has enabled her to live in London, Zurich, Dhaka and now in Winchester where she is assistant to The Winchester Gallery. Whilst she juggles her
Masters, being a mother of three children and working at the Winchester School of Art.
Her work explores the use of jewel like colours and textures reflecting her textile training and ethnic background re-imagined through subversive techniques and digital technological processes.
She works from her Studio based in Winchester, UK, where commissions thread her work. If you would like something custom made or designed please contact her using the contact tab.
