About the Artist

 

The painter Jeremy Henderson passed away peacefully on April 28th, 2009 following the diagnosis of a brain tumor.  His images deliberately evoke the picturesque and romantic landscape conventions that originated in the late 18th century as well as the expressionist subjectivity of painters such as Jack B Yeats.

 

"Since returning to Ireland in 1999, my work has become less concerned with resisting landscape paintings in a cultural context more appropriate to our times but has come full circle towards an internalised organic abstraction which characterised my more intuitive approach in the early '80s,"

Jeremy Henderson
