Jeremy Fraser who is based in Suffolk came to painting a bit later in his life. His work could be described as modern abstract and has a forceful impact on the emotions, bursting with colour and unrestrained form. His art adheres to the belief of the American, Richard Diebenkorn, who said ‘Painting is like a stick with figuration on one end and abstraction on the other and one must be free to move up and down the stick when you feel like it’. This concept has suited Jeremy well. He believes a painting is really just an arrangement of shapes and colours, and if one wanders into abstract territory he feels it is his job to compose the arrangement in a way that satisfies himself as well as his onlooker.
