Jeremy Shockley’s ‘Daydream Dream Believer’ 

Bringing a dreamy collection that explores the dichotomy between reality and fantasy to Moosey, Norwich from where he currently resides in Los Angeles, California is Jeremy Shockley (b.1982). Originally from Travellers Rest, South Carolina, Jeremy Shockley arrived in Norwich to tell us a story; one of magical realism in which the ending will be different in each percipients mind. To Shockley, an artist’s job is to plant a seed – one that can be nurtured and grown without him present. That’s exactly what he has done with Daydream Believer.

With some of his fondest, earliest memories being drawing on the walls of his family home, Shockley always knew he wanted to be an artist. After studying a Ba in psychology and a BFA in painting and photography, he moved to New York to complete work as a psychologist, but almost inevitably journeyed into the art world where he grew and expanded his creative direction. After 10 years, he moved to LA, where he now resides.

The title of this exhibition, taken from the song by The Monkees of the same name, invites us to enter a state of mind that allows us to look beneath reality, not just figuratively, but literally; Shockley teases the underpaintings on his canvases, revealing the blueprints of his paintings – a stark, striking reality lying bare under a crimson sunset that is slipping away or a small skeleton standing in the corner, peeling away a milky blue sky.
