About the artist:

One of the most collectable UK contemporary artists of his generation, Jeremy Houghton’s past commissions include HM The Queen, Aston Martin, and the London 2012 Olympics. He is currently artist-in-residence for Lord March at Goodwood. His work has been exhibited in some of the most prestigious galleries throughout Europe, the USA, South Africa and India, and you now have an exclusive opportunity to see his latest collection in London.

Houghton's much anticipated new exhibition, Liminal Encounters, will feature work from his Royal and sporting residencies, alongside his paintings of time, motion, transience and change. The people and objects that characterize these scenes are illuminated by the way that he shapes the spaces between things, and the spaces in which bodies linger, shimmer, move and often take flight.
