Zoe  Mendelson


Dr Zoë Mendelson (b. 1976) is an artist and writer with an expanded field practice that owes its spatialisation, historical narratives and compositional framework to painting-focused enquiry. She engages collation as a methodological framework for creating networks between psychoanalytic theory, psychotherapeutic practice, spatial theory, fine art and critical practice. Her work includes various forms of writing (fiction and non-fiction), painting, collage, drawing, hand driven animation and installation. Mendelson has exhibited widely showing works, performing and publishing, nationally and internationally. Her work is also installed permanently (visibly and covertly) in public buildings.

Zoë Mendelson's research engages disorder as a culturally produced phenomenon, in parallel to its clinical counterpart, suggesting its value to knowledge production within Fine Art and critical theory.

Zoë is Course Leader for BA Fine Art Painting at Wimbledon College of Arts, University of the Arts London. She co-curates the network paintingresearch with Geraint Evans.
