Laser Class, 2012 is a testament to Jeremy Houghton’s ability in capturing movement. Here, Houghton has captured the energetic atmosphere as the sailor races around the buoy. Using his signature two-tone palette, he has depicted the hurried movement of the boat as it sprints to the finish which conveys the visual narrative of the piece.
The men’s Laser was a sailing event at the 2012 London Summer Olympics program, held in Weymouth. The laser is a popular one-design class of small sailing dinghies.
