Jeremy Barlow is a devotee of architecture and fascinated by the play of light and shadow. In most of his canvasses, the architectural motifs dominate, with the multiple angles of the buildings he paints serving as focal points for his unusual sources of light.

Born in the Midlands, Barlow is a master of the urban landscape. He leads his viewer on a poetic promenade where harmony of color combines with unexpected relationships between line and angle
In his paintings, the simplest street scene escapes from the commonplace in a wealth of detail and sharp contrasts

In this "tour" of Europe, Venice holds pride of place. The city of the doges provides a unique opportunity for the painter to seize those soft moments when the calm of the canals shroud the city in a cloak of mystery.
