“You shall go to the ball”, Jeremy Houghton, Oil, 60 x 60 cm £5000 Since 2005, when Jeremy’s fulltime painting career began, he has achieved some notable achievements and commissions: He was official artist for London Fashion Week in 2007, officially painted HM the Queen in 2009, and has had solo exhibitions at some of the world's premier galleries - The Saatchi Gallery and Everard Read gallery amongst others. He is currently a resident artist at Highgrove, and is one of BT's official artists for the London 2012 Olympic games. Through diverse portfolios Houghton's work is an aesthetical study of relationships, creating works which embrace the pleasure of seeing. The conservation of balanced connections between man and nature is the inspiration behind his work - particularly those concerning water - and how they can be portrayed from different visual, social and environmental angles. Old photographic negatives provide the starting point for each piece of work. Tone and form are then used to portray movement and space, purposefully distanced from time.
