How does one get Jeremy Sharma to distill the first seven years of his artistic practice ? I asked art writer/filmmaker Patricia Chen to crack it in a 4-part video interview series to be released weekly:
Part 1 : The Shoe Polish series 2003
Part 2: The Army Days and Sea Slab series 2003-2007
Part 3: The Postcard series 2011
Part 4: The Variation and Monochromatic series 2011
THE SHOE POLISH SERIES
Jeremy ‘painted’ with shoe polish on paper for his graduation thesis in 2003. Why shoe polish? But why not? It is a type of oil. It brought back memories of his army days.
