Jerome is a London born artist who is in his final year on the MA Painting programme at the Royal College of Art. He has worked as a chess and art tutor and shown works at exhibitions around Britain and South Korea. Currently he is working with several organisations to discover new ways in which artists can work with their communities to facilitate a sustainable sense of agency. Jerome’s works take on many simultaneous forms of expression that he draws from at any given time. Each informing the other, these forms are rooted in his experiences of living in working-class London, and he uses painting, installation, curation and performance from a personal and artistic subject position. He explores concepts around Play and Otherness through which he participates in conversations around solitude, blackness, paint, structuralism and the psyche of the artist. Applying the role of curator to flush out ideas around structural linguist theories in relation to colours and slang, he uses one of his forms of expression to focus on new subjectivities that are diasporic and belong to a wider transatlantic Afro community that has a ‘living’ cultural impact on contemporary Britain and world culture.
