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.

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!
