Simon has lectured at Falmouth since 1989, and has exhibited his work widely in selected exhibitions in the UK and internationally.
“My paintings are a response to time spent within nature; I’m drawn to the commonplace, the unnoticed. I try to capture the fleeting and the transitory; the effect of light – not only how it appears, but also how it behaves…I am also interested in the psychology of decision making within the creative process and my work investigates the relationship between spontaneity and control. My paintings allow these seemingly disparate ideas to co-exist side by side.”
Next month, Simon with be co-delivering Falmouth School of Art’s Abstract Painting Summer Intensives.
Also showing, on the top floors of the gallery, is artist Youki Hirakawa‘s ‘Secret Fire’.
