Maps Exhibitor: Sarah ‘Kenikie’ Palmer

Sarah ‘Kenikie’ Palmer graduated in 2014 with a BA (Hons) Fine Art: Painting from the Wimbledon College of Art.

She has exhibited in many shows in London, and in 2014 was shortlisted for the Works in Print Art Graduates Prize and nominated for Saatchi New Sensations award.

For ‘Maps‘ Sarah will be displaying two new paintings which play on the conventional iconography of a television weather forecast (the familiar weather-girl by a map with animated isobars and other symbols) to highlight the failure of our Infotainment culture to actually inform us of anything.

A few words from the artist:

My work examines the uneasiness of entertainment television. Its constant presence in the background of daily life has, over time, desensitised us to its inherent strangeness. Its hypnotic images inform our society almost without detection. Through the durational act of painting, I slow down these images in order to interpret them.
