American painter Jeremy DePrez develops paintings through attempts to momentarily experience and analyze articles culled from his immediate environment. DePrez imposes humor, self-described awkwardness, and a variety of painterly strategies to build up a visual and material history within each painting. These impositions encourage the formation of irregularly shaped paintings that overlap and inform one another in a way that transcends their sources objectivity and propels them into a more allegorical space.
Deprez has held solo exhibitions with Zach Feuer in New York, Texas Gallery in Houston, University of Houston, and Farewell Books in Austin. He’s also exhibited his work at Galerie Max Hetzler in Berlin, Portland Museum of Art Biennial, White Flag Projects in St. Louis, MO, Retrospective in Hudson, NY among many others.
