September 2021 sees the publication of ‘An Artist in Residence’ a book written by the art critic Colin Cameron. A book signing and interview quickly follows at the Royal Academy of Art in Piccadilly. Artist and critic discuss Houghton’s career to date including the fascinating residencies in sportings most elite institutions, royal palaces and military barracks.
Cameron notes the very particular personality traits that have led to such an impressive catalogue of residencies which date back to drawing Zulu’s in Kwazulu-Natal and a fascination for Rorke’s Drift in 2004, “versatility, innate curiosity and a preference for being out of your comfort zone. When in residence he is intimate, yet mentally detached, present, yet almost invisible.”
Houghton’s latest residency captured the intrinsic relationship of Her Royal Highness and her horses in both formal and intimate moments, resulting in a collection of work entitled ‘All the Queen’s Horses’ as featured in Horse & Hound, Great British Life, and Country Life.
Jeremy Houghton: An Artist in Residence is available to buy at Art Cotswold gallery for £25.
