Jeremy Willett explores fictional non-space; a screen saver, a techno visual, a rustic landscape, wild and overgrown, a junkyard on a desert island, a sky the colour of television tuned to a dead channel‚ (William Gibson, Neuromancer, 1984); Each idealistic, romanticised, surreal and as unreachable as the next, Willett explores
Colour in Willett’s work is used to suggest an alternate state. The colour keys are those of counter cultures seeking a transcendental experience, such as in acid house and psychedelia. He approaches these places through both his small-scale polychromatic sculptures and computer-generated imagery.
Willett lives and works in London. He graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2006 and has since exhibited across the UK, with recent group exhibitions at The Cello Factory (London); Pumphouse Gallery (London); and The Nunnery (London). In 2010, his work was presented at No Soul for Sale, Tate Modern,London and in a solo exhibition ‚ ‘In – Thru the Repeat’‚ Studio 1.1, London.
