Through its extraordinary beauty and radiance, Simon’s work
encourages us to embrace abstract art. Abstracts are of course all
about communicating with the individual and taking the viewer on their
own very personal journey. There are no right or wrong answers when
describing what we see in these paintings; Simon gives us clues with
his poetic titles for each work, but it is the emotional reaction of the
individual viewer to each individual work that sets up that all important
dialogue and turns a painting into a conversation.
Sometimes characterised as a ‘radical impressionist’, Simon has
attracted significant attention for his growing collection of colour burst
oil paintings. He has a host of admirers and is widely collected but
perhaps the greatest accolade of his career came when the world’s
most celebrated theoretical physicist and cosmologist, Stephen
Hawking, saw his work and commented,
High praise indeed.
Dramatic, atmospheric and totally captivating, Simon’s dynamic
abstracts are widely collected by both private and corporate clients,
located around the globe, and have appeared in many prestigious
exhibitions and galleries.
