Australian artist Jeremy Geddes (born in Wellington, New Zealand in 1974) is most known for his hyperrealistic paintings. His figures, who often defy the laws of gravity (sometimes literally; he often depicts cosmonauts floating through space), are accompanied by symbolic elements, such as pigeons, which trap the audience without remedy. Geddes's creative process always begins with a preliminary study on a small scale, in which he visualizes and perfects the initial image, adding or removing elements. According to the artist himself, this process is long, can take weeks or months, but indispensable, because this is a step that avoids paying a high price during the creation of the final work.
Geddes studied painting at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia. His work has been exhibited at Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York; and Pulse Art Fair Miami. He lives and works in Melbourne.
