About the body of work

Jeremy creates exquisite oil paintings that are designed for a lifespan of several centuries, making his work a wise investment for the collector who has champagne taste for mysterious art. Only the most permanent, non-yellowing pigments are used. The substrates are pH neutral so the pigment won’t “sink- in” over time. 100% natural amber varnish seals the work, allowing a safe and simple method for future surface cleaning.

The 2012-13 body of work are mostly expressions of societal ills. By no means should one assume that the works are self-righteous. Rather, they are meant to document the emotions of the “here-and-now” for future generations in an attempt to demonstrate that, regardless of the year, our biggest problems remain the same throughout history.

My paintings are, in extreme summation, conscious interpretations of unconscious events.

The genesis of my paintings occur in the quiet twilights nestled between being awake and being asleep. This God-given, momentary lapse of reasoning is, ironically, a sort of purgatory where I extract my best treasures to share with the world.

Oftentimes, I do not fully understand my paintings until they are near completion, yet I faithfully pursue the vision of what I have been given to do.

I believe that the highest art is able to diplomatically reconcile the artist’s competing natures of the spirit and mind through the hands, thereby creating an extension that has the ability to remain static through millennia.

The purpose and intent of this blog is to familiarize you with my paintings and give you a starting point for understanding them.

I will never give any full explanations of my work. That is for you to experience.

There are three things I ask you to consider:

1. Artists have a special responsibility to honor God with the talent they have been blessed with. It is not to be squandered painting mundane landscapes found in timeshare condos or throwing paint around. It is to be used to promote good ideas.

2. On occasion, the subject matter of the art can be difficult to digest and/or understand… just keep in mind that each work is extremely symbolic and there is a moral that is just for you, waiting for you to discover.

3. I don’t use drugs… except caffeine. If an artist uses drugs for inspiration or execution of work, they lack imagination and diligence.
