Jeremy Gardiner’s distinctive style takes forward the ideas of pioneering landscape artists such as John Tunnard, Ben Nicholson, Peter Lanyon and Richard Diebenkorn. Each of Jeremy Gardiner’s paintings combines many visits in different weather and light and many different ideas and reflections to create a composite, three-dimensional impression of the experience of being in that place. To the contemporary view Gardiner brings an awareness of the geology, the billions of tiny creatures whose bodies made up the chalk on this Jurassic coastline, along with the effects of weather and time on that geology.
