Owen Oppenheimer (b. USA, 1969) studied painting at Cheltenham School of Art, followed by postgraduate courses at l’Institut des Hautes Etudes en Arts Plastique in Paris and the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam.
His work has been shown in exhibitions internationally, screened at film festivals in Europe, Asia and Africa, and broadcast on tv in the UK and the Netherlands.
Oppenheimer’s artwork explores trapped psychological states; thwarted ambition, frustration, failure, loss. His practice includes prints, objects, films and installations, all shot through with a mordant sense of humour. Like something glimpsed out of the corner of one’s eye. Or scraped out of it.
He lives and works in London.
