Sale-based artist Jeremy Kasper presents landscapes in motion in his first solo exhibition, Inertia. This exhibition explores the environment in movement, from the point of view of an observer travelling in an inert state at high speed. Each painting is based on a photograph taken from the window of a car. He says:
“Using abstract landscape photographs as a point of departure, I let the process of painting guide me, allowing me to explore the medium and the action of painting. For me this is an inward and reflective practice, evoking a sense of atmosphere, a mood and emotion”.
Jeremy’s art will already be familiar to many Sale residents, as the legal street art that brings vibrancy to the town’s laneways. Aside from managing the Kerb Skateboard shop in Sale, Jeremy is also a professional chef with more than twenty years’ experience in classical French cuisine.
For Jeremy making the change from food to painting came naturally. He says:
“I have always looked at cooking in a creative way, sketching up dishes before they were produced. The food was my paint palette and the plate was my canvas, creating edible sculptures”.
Jeremy recently completed a Diploma of Visual Arts at RMIT and is currently working towards an Advanced Diploma.
Thursday 9 February 6.00pm. All welcome.
