Simon Garden RWA
Simon's paintings are visual conundrums, rich in metaphor and meaning, they are immediately eye-catching, their subject matter intriguing and entertaining. On closer inspection one begins to explore the textured surface, line, colour and shapes. An observer of the human condition, it's fun to travel through a painting taking time to meet the odd characters, to consider their journeys and the challenges the artist lays before them. There are mysteries within, unanswered questions, philosophical and inspirational ideas. In the exhibition Simon explores themes of edges and borders, extraordinary meeting places and treacherous journeys, but also there is a strong sense of joy, the ordinary, the beauty in nature and small special moments.
