Beginning his career in 2007, works by Simon Kirk have proved a great investment. His works are increasingly sought after by art collectors.
He is a resident artist with the Turner | Barnes | Gallery and his work is regularly exhibited as part of their collections for the Hong Kong, Singapore and London Affordable Art Fairs. He has had solo exhibitions in France, Denmark and the USA.
His practice associates images and cut-up text that helps us view everyday life with fresh eyes. The work is primarily layers of painting combined with collaged elements. A style best described as Neo-expression, characterized by intense subjectivity and rough handling of materials. Many of Simon’s applications have a resemblance of a Basquiat style.
He also uses the decollage technique – cutting, tearing or sanding away parts of the built up surface image to reveal layers below.
Across his many styles of art, ranging from Fine Art Oil Paintings to Pop Art collage works, there is something for all tastes.
