Jeremy Geddes is a Melbourne-based artist known for his surreal and slightly dystopian oil paintings of cosmonauts, people, and birds floating in space. While he cites RenĂ© Magritte and Antonio Garcia Lopez as two of his artistic influences, Geddes doesnâ€™t align his work with any particular genre or movement; rather, it is internally focused and derived, shedding light on deep mental experiences; â€śI really want to trigger emotional or meditative states in the viewers,â€ť he told Iron and Air. There is a stillness to his work, a quietness, a pain that is both intensified and relieved through its representation; as the embryonic subjects curl up inside the void, there is a sense of being held and a sense of surrender.
