The Shoe Polish Series

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


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.
