Born 1987, London
Jemma Appleby's work is an investigation into the complex relationship between architecture and landscape.
The forest landscape is used as a haven for solitude and calmness, with a focus on architecture which references utopias and enriched futures. Architectural forms have been used to explore the themes of shelter and protection by generating structures of physical impossibility. Initially the structures integrated into the landscape are based on Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian houses. They give the illusion of a structure offering refuge, however they are no more than geometric planes creating a facade. Space, volume and structure have become entwined and play with the perception of reality and illusion.
