About

Large and small works by Simon-King Underwood

The phrase 'art for art's sake' (from the French l'art pour l'art) condenses the notion that art has its own value and should be judged apart from any themes which it might touch on, such as morality, religion, history, or politics. It teaches that judgements of aesthetic value should not be confused with those proper to other spheres of life. 

Simon's current work is a mixture of both figurative and landscape art. 

More recently he has been experimenting with geometric art and digital photography and have been working under the description ‘Geometric Constructivism’.

Simon uses geometric marks to describe nature in a semi-representational way so the subject is still recognisable but somehow different.
