Lot Details

Characterizing his fascination with nostalgic imagery from his past, this oil and alkyd painting by Jeremy Dickinson captures with precise realism and exacting details one of the UK's famous double decker buses. Entitled 'London Spectra' and completed in 1994, Dickinson sets his carefully rendered, bright red toy bus against a stark white background to allow the image to pop into the foreground and seize the eye's attention.

Drawing inspiration from his childhood, British contemporary artist Jeremy Dickinson (b.1963) creates detail oriented paintings consumed with nostalgic imagery, often featuring colorful backdrops and childhood toys. He graduated from York College of Arts and Technology in 1983 and from Goldsmith’s College, London, England in 1986. His warm, youthful compositions have won him much acclaim and have been the subject of numerous exhibitions throughout the world. Recent solo shows of Dickinson’s work include Anthony Meier Fine Arts, San Francisco, CA (2011), Seomi & Tuus, Seoul, Korea (2010) and Tomio Koyama Gallery, Tokyo, Japan (2010).
