Simon Kirk

Artist Statement

Artist based in Leigh on Sea, England. My work has been selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibtion 2015. I previously exhibited and sold at the Summer Exhibition in 2013 and 2010. My work is in private collections in Dubai, USA, Australia and across Europe and is sold at the New York, Hong Kong, Singapore and London Affordable Art Fairs. I free associate text and images to create self contained scenarios with their own reality. I am a big fan of haiku and the gentle playfulness that helps us view everyday life with fresh eyes. The work is multidirectional and open ended. The work is primarily layers of painting combined with collaged elements. However, I also use the decollage technique - cutting, tearing or sanding away parts of the built up surface image to reveal layers below.
