About

Oil on canvas Artist’s monogram upper left. Signed and titled verso Jeremy Houghton is a British contemporary painter whose work explores the dynamics of light and motion through everyday experiences and journeys. Houghton’s work is an ongoing study of movement. In addition to sport, he uses themes such as flight, space and time, to depict a broad variety of human endeavours. “As an artist I try to avoid comfort zones, push the boundaries and further perceptual horizons. I have worked with a number of world class athletes in many different fields, all of whom drive themselves to the limit. I hope my paintings capture this human sense of purpose, adding to the legacy of sport and adventure”. After achieving a bachelor’s degree in law from Exeter, Houghton went on to begin his studies in art in 1998 at The Slade School of Art for a summer course and then moved to France in 1999 to attend the University of Aix Marseille to study Fine Arts but without completing as he accepted a job in Cape Town. He spent a number of years in South Africa as head of the art department at the International School of Cape Town. On return to London he started to paint professionally full-time around 2005 and as his career developed began to receive many prestigious commissions that invited him to detail the life of many high-profile communities, such as being the official artist for London Fashion Week in 2008 and for the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics. He was also selected as the artist in residence for the H.M. The Queen and H.RH The Prince of Wales, as well as at Highgrove in 2013 and then during 2015 he received another Royal appointment by becoming artist in residence at the Windsor Castle estate. Following this he went on to receive a masters in Fine Art in 2017 at the University of Gloucestershire and additionally was the artist in residence for the Wimbledon championships last year. With these projects Houghton was interested in getting beyond the public perception, to document the everyday scenes that characterise an event or place. His technique explores the potential of negative space to represent light, as he removes any extraneous details leaving slightly abstracted forms that show the motion of the subject within the painting and the level of closeness it has to the ability to transcend time. However, he also has a longstanding commitment to the countryside, having grown up there and a vast interest in nature, which represents his studio work that usually depicts his particular interest in birds from his time spent in Africa. Houghton, with his simplistic yet bold depictions has become one of the most collectable British artists of his generation. He has developed an international reputation by featuring in exhibitions worldwide over his career, notably a solo exhibition in Johannesburg called ‘In The Pink’, The Saatchi Gallery in London, repeated group exhibitions at Diehl Gallery in Wyoming, USA and solo exhibitions in New Delhi and Jodhpur, India.
