Jeremy Houghton is a British contemporary painter whose work explores the dynamics of light and motion. The idea of ‘telling the untold story’ continues to inform Houghton’s nuanced approach to his artist-in-residence projects, which have punctuated his practice for the last ten years. Invited to document the life of a number of high-profile communities, he shifts between the iconic and the everyday, painting subjects as diverse as one of the world’s fastest sailing boats and a horse-drawn plough. This sketch is part of his collection of works painted for the America’s Cup in 2017, as an artist in Residence for Land Rover BAR.

An unparalleled history of international commissions has shaped Houghton’s artistic career. His residencies have included the Ben Ainslie Racing America Cup, Windsor Castle for HM the Queen and being official artist for the London 2012 Olympics.


Houghton’s work is an ongoing study of movement. In addition to sport, he uses themes such as flight, space and time, to depict a broad variety of human endeavours. “As an artist l try to avoid comfort zones, push the boundaries and further perceptual horizons. I have worked with a number of world class athletes in many different fields, all of whom drive themselves to the limit. I hope my paintings capture this human sense of purpose, adding to the legacy of sport and adventure”.


Jeremy’s paintings try and evoke a feeling of timelessness so you look at them and think, ‘Is this today or is it 100 years ago?’ Jeremy says of his own work,

“When I go out for a day hunting or fishing I will take as many photos as possible but I am very keen not to be seen because I don’t want people to pose, I want them just to carry on doing what they do. I don’t want to be the focal point, I’m just in the shadows observing from a distance. It is the exact opposite of a selfie.”

If the artwork is up to £25,000 in value, and the artist is still alive, Trinity House can arrange a 0% interest loan through the Own Art scheme.
