Jeremy’s painting practice is centred around working outdoors and from life. He is motivated by a personal need for mindfulness and a rapport with things. His practice is informed by mediation, environmentalism and research into phenomenology. In the current context of speedy, hyper-consumerism, Jeremy wants to assert the agency of the human and the agency of things by taking time to interact with things though painting, sculpture and drawing.
