‘Unfolding Landscape’ Artist Jeremy Gardiner in conversation with Pallant House curator Simon Martin at the London Art Fair – Friday 18 January – 12:30 to 1:30pm
Pallant House curator Simon Martin spoke with British artist Jeremy Gardiner (b. 1957) about his art, his fascination with coastal landscapes and geology, his innovative working methods and the new comprehensive book ‘The Art of Jeremy Gardiner: Unfolding Landscape’ published by Lund Humphries and launched at London Art Fair. Gardiner’s paintings and prints – depicting the coastal landscape of southern England – place him within a tradition in modern British art encompassing John Tunnard (1900–71), Paul Nash (1889–1946) and Ben Nicholson (1894–1982). But the construction of Gardiner’s paintings is experimental and his pioneering approach to his use of materials makes Gardiner one of Britain’s most original contemporary landscape artists.
