Oona Grimes


Oona Grimes is a compulsive draw-er, scribbler and storyteller. Working with books and multiples, etching and mixed media, she embraces redundant print processes; salvaging and recycling last of stock, discarded and obsolete materials.

Narratives gleaned from such diverse lives as William Bligh, Mary Bell, John Dee and Fred West are mapped and served up as cocktail-shaken distillations of individual and collective memory.


Oona Grimes is currently Visiting Lecturer at Ruskin School of Fine Art – Oxford University, University of the Arts and R.C.A. Grimes was featured in Contemporary Art Society’s ARTfutures 2005 and 2007 held at Bloomberg SPACE, London.
