Oil paintings by Jeremy Geddes

Jeremy Geddes is one of 50 artists featured in our upcoming publication entitled Metamorphosis2.
       "Many painters compose their work so the edges of the canvas are as invisible as possible. All the points of interest are contained within the middle portion of the image, the tonal and colour construction is designed to keep the eye within this space, to keep them viewing the painting for as long as possible.        I don't really find that interesting, and I often go the other route of putting the points of interest at the edge of a piece, and creating a design that forces the eye off the edge of the canvas, I'm interested in the tension that that can create."
