British painter Jeremy Houghton tackles a range of subjects, with most of his work focused on capturing movement. His practice blends an interest in the dynamic potential of sports, the visual rhythm of migrating birds, and the everyday life of communities defined by tradition. Houghton divides his time between studio-based work and documentary residencies.
Jeremy has completed artist residencies for the 2017 Wimbledon Tennis Championships, Land Rover Ben Ainslie Racing at the America’s Cup in 2016, at Goodwood for the Earl of March in 2015 and at Windsor Castle for Her Majesty The Queen in 2014.
Jeremy's 'Paradise' is from his ongoing series exploring birds, usually in large flocks.
Having grown up in the countryside, Houghton has a longstanding respect for and interest in nature.
Time spent in Africa in his twenties ignited a particular interest in birds, specifically the gangly, cartoon-pink flamingo. In his studio work Jeremy continues to explore the compositional possibilities created by flocks of one of nature’s most distinctive birds.
