Jeremy Sharma was born in 1977 in Singapore. 2005-2006 Master of Fine Art LaSalle-SIA College of the Arts, Singapore
Jeremy’s constant obsession is the study of material, colour and space. After graduation Jeremy experimented on applying gestures in monochrome on white surface as in works entitled ‘class photo’, ‘drawing with Gopis’ and ‘nude’.
Soon after his drawing series (but prior to the actual Cerulean series) Jeremy already made references to the colour of cerulean. The major exhibition of Jeremy’s Cerulean Series took place in 2011 in Art Forum Gallery. This series of works mark the beginning of other works to follow where he continues to explore materials and movement on different surfaces.
Some words on the Cerulean Series, it began with the colour of the sea, then the colour cerulean. Then there is variation of the colour of the sea. Jeremy painted one section of the composite whole each day trying to get that exact tone of the greenish blue.
Jeremy is interested in colour as an ideal, of evoking desire and finding that one elusive tone one can never grasp. He extended this interest to the butter/yellow suite, a lovely complementary to the cerulean.
