This exhibition by Simon Crawford explores the Yorkshire and British countryside, inspired by specific walks with dog and meandering explorations through landscapes of the places he loves. From photographs taken on his walks or small sketches done in the field, Simon has produced a series of colourful, impactful and large paintings, for this, his first solo show at Ryedale Folk Museum.
Simon studied History of Art and English at the University of Nottingham. He has exhibited widely in the U.K. and abroad, including a mixed touring exhibition organised the British Council to Moscow. In 2001, Simon won the Hugh Casson prize for drawing at the Royal Academy Summer Show, in which he continues to regularly exhibit.
