Simon Kirk
Leigh on Sea

Simon Kirk exhibited and sold at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2013 and 2010.

His work is sold at the New York, Hong Kong, Singapore and London Affordable Art Fairs. In addition to the UK he exhibits in Denmark and he is currently showing work in Flagstaff, Arizona.

His work draws from images and text collected in his sketchbooks which through free association create playful abstractions. He is interested in narrative, specifically the ambiguous subjective ‘hidden’ narrative – glimpses of an altogether different narrative order where the ‘story’ remains oblique or partial. The work is multidirectional and open ended. Meaning is inherent but impossible to pin down precisely.

The work is primarily layers of painting combined with collaged elements. However, he also uses the decollage technique – cutting, tearing or sanding away parts of the built up surface image to reveal layers below.
