Marina Profile .jpeg

Marina Renee-Cemmick (b.1994) grew up in Dorset, moving to Glasgow to study Painting at Glasgow school of Art (2018). During this time she was awarded an exchange program to Kyoto Seika, Japan. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, with her first solo show ‘Underlying Structures’ at The New Glasgow Society (2018). In 2018 she was awarded the Aon Community Arts Award and shortlisted for Most Promising Artist, later receiving the RSA John Kinross award to travel to Florence. Currently, she lives and works in London as is finishing an MA in drawing at The Royal Drawing School, London (2021).


Marina works across multi disciplines, which all fundamentally stem from a strong drawing practice. Drawing is a process of understanding the world around her. She works from observation to explore the form and light of objects, people and landscapes; discovering how something works, it’s structure and it's relationship to the space around it. She makes figurative drawings, oil paintings as well as installations and performance. All explore the human body, as a vessel for experience. Her interests lie in how we inhabit our bodies, physically and emotionally, and their capacity to hold the memory of our lives and past generations. Her background in dance and physical theatre allows for a sensitivity and innate interest towards the expression of the body and it’s movement. In the process of creation, there is a constant dialog between materials and ideas; an expansion and contraction that is playful and fluid, and evolves during the making.
