Recent graduate and emerging young artist Jeremy Knowles was born in Hertfordshire, UK, in 1992. Having graduated with a degree in fine art photography from Camberwell College of Art (University of the Arts London) in 2015, his practice has developed into a playful photographic study of the everyday.
Jeremy’s images draw patterns and humour from the randomness and repetitive non-events that characterize the mundane within our lives – the overlooked and often unnoticed aspects of our existence that make us human. At the core of his approach lies a search for order and formality: whether in architecture, amongst people, or in the bits and pieces he finds while walking the streets of Berlin.
By bringing greater prominence and visibility to the accidental, the miraculous and the comical, we are challenged by the artist to reconsider the weight of our daily interactions with things and people, and meditate on what happens when we think nothing is happening.
