We are delighted to announce that from June 9th to 16th 2016, we will be exhibiting the works of award-winning visual artist Jeremy Houghton at Trinity House Paintings, in Jeremy’s home village of Broadway.
Jeremy was born in the Cotswold village of Broadway, and still lives and works here today. His work has been exhibited throughout Europe, the USA, India and South Africa.
A broad variety of adventures and experiences have shaped an artistic development that has been chronicled through a rich context of specific commissions, international exhibitions and residencies. The many prestigious residencies have taken him into close proximity with the sources of his work, enabling him to witness important events, and draw on the immediacy and vibrancy of places to provide images that energize his narrative. The following are just some of his achievements:-
– Awarded Best Sporting Artist by S.E.A. in 2012
– Official BT Olympic Artist at the London 2012 Olympic Games
– Official Tour Artist for the Aston Martin Centenary Tour of Europe 2013
– Artist in Residence at Windsor Castle for HM The Queen in 2014
– Artist in Residence at Goodwood for 2015/16, painting the summer season of speed
– Artist in Residence for Land Rover Ben Ainslie Racing, visually recording the journey towards the America’s Cup in Bermuda 2017
– More recently, the James Hunt Foundation has commissioned Houghton to produce the official collection of paintings for the 40th anniversary of James Hunt’s Formula One World Championship in 1976.
Paintings made in his Broadway studio embrace the natural world at full tilt and further a personal theme of dynamic motion. Sparked by remembered experiences and a more imaginary approach, they often explore the spaces and actions of birds congregating and migrating, edging the liquidity of oil paint or watercolour, to processes which encourage his pictures to float in and out of abstraction.
In experiencing all his paintings as a journey, our senses are richly stimulated: sensual colour or contrasting tonal relationships lead us to discover visual pathways; imagery leads us to anticipate memories; forms and movement are implied by the play of light and shade; objects seem to coalesce or evaporate before our eyes.
