New Simon Garden paintings on show now

Simon Garden RWA

Painter Simon Garden shows his works in our Winter Show until Sunday 23 February 2014.  An exceptional painter, whose work seems to tell stories which are full of wonder and humanity. New works by Simon Garden have just arrived:

SIMON GARDEN’s large paintings in oil and acrylic on board have an intense folklore quality, often showing lone travellers on roads through wide imaginary landscapes or vast structures approached only by spindly ladders.  His work has a sense of story that describes the human condition in touching, humorous and profound ways.  He captures moments and gestures, ‘small kindnesses’ as he calls them, and is often concerned with shelter, protection and escape. His figures stand in imaginary landscapes of haunting beauty.  The paintings celebrate are full of wonder and humour. They contemplate the mysteries that appear suddenly out of the everyday.

Simon Garden has an exceptional sense of colour, and his unusual technique of using both oil and acrylic produces vibrant glowing paintings which lead the eye on contemplative journeys through his pictures.

Window 90 x 46cm oil and acrylic on panel £4,900
