Biography Jeremy Gardiner
While incorporating the Modernist tradition of artists like John Tunnard and Ben Nicholson, Jeremy Gardiner's interpretation of the landscape is also informed by science, new technologies and direct physical engagement with ancient landscapes. Gardiner has spent several decades exploring the Jurassic Coast, the 95-mile long stretch of coastline running from Orcombe Point in East Devon to Old Harry Rocks in East Dorset with a geology which spans 185 million years of earth's history.
Gardiner is interested in the relationship between landscape and time, and in an attempt to emulate the effects of geological time, his working method involves scouring, building up layers of paint, collaging and sanding down.
