|Simon's canvas work is rooted in industrial landscape. There is a strong emphasis on highly engineered, everyday structures. These rich, high gloss, usually red backgrounds that play with the rules of colour theory. Textures and tones work off each other creating very bright, impactive paintings that leave subtlety behind. Much of his work has a strong sense of perspective linking back to his interest in architecture, more precisely Victorian engineering and the High Tech style of the late 1980's.
