Simon Garden

Next Solo Exhibition

17TH MAY TO 7TH JUNE, 2020

 

Simon Garden is well known in London's, Bath and Somerset for his textural, fantastical and philosophical paintings.  Layers and layers of thick paint are joyously and energetically applied with domestic brushes to create his signature, richly coloured, textured surfaces.   At the same time his watchful eye is on the compositions often classically constructed, philisophical, beautiful and daring.  Garden strips his works down to their most elemental forms choosing to concentrate on the unusual.  This rare simplicity and purity of vision in his painting arouses the subconscious and fires the imagination, drawing us irresistibly into a world both dreamlike, timeless and distinctly human.
