About the Artist
Jeremy Kirwan-Ward is a painter and sculptor who has been exhibiting since 1971. He has held numerous solo shows in Western Australia, primarily - over the past decade - through Perth Galleries. His work has been included in group exhibitions including H2O, from the Kerry Stokes Collection for the 2000 Perth International Arts festival; Geometric Abstraction in the 60’s & 70’s at Goddard de Fiddes in Perth; New Sculpture 1999 at Access Galleries in Sydney and Swingtime: West Coast Art from the Seventies at the Lawrence Wilson Gallery, UWA. His work is held in collections including Artbank, the Art Galley of Western Australia, the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Scotland, the Holmes á Court Collection and the Kerry Stokes Collection as well as university collections nationally and in corporate and private collections in Australia, the UK, the USA and India.
John Stringer, in Artists in Residence, comments that "...his paintings are infused with emotion, mood and atmosphere, emphasising spiritual and ethereal qualities that have no discernible relationship with recognisably local motifs".
In 1971, Jeremy earned an Assoc. Fine Art from WAIT, (now the Curtin University of Technology), Perth, Western Australia.
