Remembering Jeremy Crisp

The local artist Jeremy Crisp died about this time last last year. I went to his funeral last September 11th at Keswick church, and sat next to Phil Short, who used to look after Jeremy’s Fiat 126.

Jeremy was a good friend, and a compassionate, creative and amusing individual who, for his last three years on Earth, had managed the exhibition space that was St Margaret’s Church for local artists. I helped him prepare the space when he inaugurated his project. It would be indelicate here to speak of the manner of his passing, but suffice it to say that it was by his own hand. I miss you, Jeremy! Here is an image of him (and me) reflected in his cuboid mirrored structure, a permanent feature then of St Margaret’s Church.
