Jeremy Durling

Artist

Jeremy Durling began to draw and paint from the figure at the age of sixteen through a high school dual enrollment program. He received an Associates Degree from the Mount Wachusett Community College with a concentration in painting under John Pacheco. He moved on to Massachusetts College of Art, where Nancy Mccarthy and Christopher Chippendale would become his mentors. It was at Massart that Jeremy first studied with George Nick. Massart's prestigious George Nick prize allowed Jeremy to spend 5 months seeing Europe and studying in Florence. He graduated from Massart with a BFA in painting in 2009, and continued his lessons with George independently. He studied with George for a total of four years. Jeremy is represented in Boston by the Sloane Merrill Gallery. Website: jeremydurling.com

After moving to Boston, Massachusetts, and securing her graduate degree in studio art (MFA, Northeastern University, 2016), she began to incorporate video projections onto her paintings. Her works, charting a path from their signature “video-paintings”—video overlays of choreographed movement projected onto figurative oil-on-canvas paintings—to new pieces that reflect the fluidity of her outlook. She has held numerous national and international exhibitions and performances. Her works have been collected by The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Morris Museum in New Jersey and Akron Art Museum in Ohio.
