Lives and works between London, United Kingdom, and Sydney, Australia.
Jess MacNeil works at the points of intersection between painting, installation, video and photography, often taking as her subject matter the dynamics of the human/environment relationship. MacNeil has exhibited widely internationally and within Australia. Her work was included in ‘Primavera’ at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney and the Samstag Museum of Art in 2008 and was presented at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, in 2009. She was awarded the Anne & Gordon Samstag Scholarship, the Fauvette Louriero Memorial Artists Travel Scholarship, and an Australia Council Grant in 2006 and completed a Graduate Affiliate Program at the Slade School, London in 2008. In 2009 she won the Primavera Veolia Acquisitive Award. Her work is held in public collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, and the Australia Council for the Arts as well as numerous Australian and international private collections.
