Jeremy Willis

Jeremy Willis had me over to his Brooklyn studio and we hung out and talked about his paintings.  Willis describes the paintings anthropomorphically – as wanting to be doing something human, like giving birth, hugging you or selling you illicit substances.  The majority of the paintings are big and surround you with saturated colors and chaotic space.  They do feel like they have an overwhelming emotional content, and the paintings reflect the messy nature of life.  Look for more from Jeremy soon.

    cool, thanks Drew – I have more good studio visits in the works. Jeremy Willis is a solid guy, and it was great to meet up with him at his studio. Seeing a studio informs the way I look at someone’s work big time.
