New interview by Vice: Garage

New interview by Vice: Garage

Vice: Garage interviewed Jemima recently and as usual it’s a great read and you can also view a new photoshoot by photographer Alex Hodor Lee (taken in 2016) of Jemima and several more of her paintings that are on display at Sargent’s Daughters until January 21st, 2018.

“It was hard to find a divorced woman who wanted to put her wedding dress back on.”

Best known for her portrayal of Jessa in Girls, Jemima Kirke’s first love has always been art. The British-born American artist and actress got her first studio at seven, graduated from RISD in 2008, and nowadays spends as much time as possible painting in her Red Hook studio. GARAGE sat down with Kirke to discuss her off-and-on artistic career and current show of bride paintings at New York gallery Sargent’s Daughters.

“The Ceremony” photos posted

Sargent’s Daughters has posted several times about Jemima’s exhibition “The Ceremony” and I feel it’s so unfair that I have the whole Atlantic ocean between me and New York 😉 Go visit if you can and these paintings are so beautiful, maybe one day I will be able to purchase one!

On the cover of “Jungle Magazine”

Jemima is featured on the cover of the UK magazine Jungle and you can get your own copy at the magazines official site. The new photoshoot is absolutely gorgeous and they were recently taken by the talented photographer Ryan James Caruthers.

We will try and get magazine scans as soon as possible so you can see all the photos and read the interview. It’s always so much fun when something new comes up with Jemima, especially new photoshoots!

In this edition, we wanted to explore the notion of being resilient through fashion in more ways than one. The interview with our cover star, Jemima Kirke, known as an actress and artist, but most importantly a mother, tells us of her own struggle making a new life in a new country and rediscovering herself.

Jemima’s Hobo Bags collection

Jemima’s Hobo Bags collection

Remember that we posted about Jemima having some kind of project with Hobo Handbags a few days back? Well now we know more about it and she was interviewed by Coveteur and we get to know more about the collaboration. And even better – you can buy one of 20 handbag (or several of course) with an exclusive painting by Jemima! If you can afford it you should get one at once, I know I would!

Purchase one directly on Hobo Bags!

Jemima Kirke’s life after Girls involves a smoking nun and a minimal tolerance for acting

And no more than six hours spent in her art studio at a time.

Jemima Kirke doesn’t know how to draw hearts. Or at least not the kind of hearts we’re used to seeing. When handcrafted leather brand Hobo Bags wanted her to collaborate with them on a collection of 20 handpainted bags, they asked for hearts, and she replied with a nun holding a cigarette in between her lips, enveloped in smoke.

“I have a couple of nun ones that I did, and they’re weird. I was just sort of thinking nuns are loving and nice. You never think about nuns when we think about love,” she tells me over a staticky phone line from her studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
