1949 · United Kingdom
Largely influenced by St. Ives’ modernist arts community that he encountered on childhood family holidays, Jeremy Annear has dreamed of being an artist since an early age. His oil on canvas and board works employ complex textures, allowing an abstract display of primary colors juxtaposed against earthy tones. His work is reminiscent and inspired by the craft-work of artists such as Barbara Hepworth, Sir Terry Frost, Ben Nicholson, and Roger Hilton as well as other additional German, Australian, and European influences.
Born in Exeter, United Kingdom in 1949, Jeremy Annear studied at Exeter College of Art in the mid-1960s. He moved to Cornwall to pursue painting full-time in the 1980s and he currently lives and works there to this day.
Annear has enjoyed the community of life of artists, and was an active member of the historic Newlyn and Penwith Society of Artists from 1989-1993. He formed the Cobalt Group with other contemporary artists (including Ralph Freeman, Roy Walker, Carole McDowel, Russ Hedges) in 1994 and joined Group10 in 1999. Annear has engaged in numerous collaborations with musicians and writers throughout his life, and managed artsound.com from 2006-2010 working with composer Jim Aitchison to create experimental and interdisciplinary workshops for artists and musicians. He continues to work closely with International Musicians’ Seminars to this day.
