Painting & Copying Classes


Mulvey’s images depict moments when ordinary things become unknown and enchanted, allowing new possibilities to come to light. Briefcases scatter their contents, shirts are caught on the wind and people take flight. Objects from the living room and the garden come adrift.

His paintings exploit the voluptuousness and artifice of oil paint. Thoughts become palpable and sensuous.

Jeremy Mulvey specialises in painting and drawings. He studied Fine Art at Kingston Polytechnic and was awarded at British Council Scholarship to Spain on graduating in 1971.

Mulvey’s exhibition ‘Heures et Malheurs de Heures du Bureau’ (Office Hours: routine and rapture) at the World Trade Organisation in Geneva, in November 2005 took a wry look at the patterns of office life for man and women.

He exhibits regularly with the New English Art Club at the Mall Galleries and is a permanent exhibitor at ArtSquare Gallery in London where his work can be seen on the website: www.artsquare.co.uk.

He is currently Research Convenor at Cambridge School of art, Anglia Ruskin University where he is collaborating on a project with artists and curators that looks at using painting to explore issues of gender, particularly masculinity. Mulvey is currently working on an exhibition about men and war
