"Jeremy is the only painter in my selection whose work I have not seen in person but I had to include him because his images are so extraordinary. From the single bird appearing out of a rich black background to a young girl in flight having exploded (it seems) through a wall, his images are flawless and extremely compelling. He is another painter who takes no shortcuts to his goal, and although these are paintings that may come from dreams, the reality he presents is timeless."

"Void, desolate, somber, basically think of any word that means sad, and you’re describing a Jeremy Geddes’ painting. They embody every poem you’ve ever written, every feeling you’ve ever had of being alone, every fear you’ve felt of abandonment and in doing that they are perfect representations of the search for solace, which is essentially the human struggle. By the way, “Perfect Vacuum” is the painting of all paintings ever painted - it’s magnificent."

Michael Ruple

Director, Arcadia Contemporary

"When I think of contemporary narratives in representational painting I immediately go to Jeremy Geddes. With most artists I find they use foreshadowing where the narrative is approaching a climax, that moment right before right before you loose your breath or jump in your seat. Whats unique about Jeremy's work is I am left having to work backwards as he has fearlessly put you right at the apex of the curve in that moment you gasp and do not know how or where this started. Coupled with his flawless draftsmanship and technique"
