Urban Landscape Paintings by Simon Hopkinson

About

These paintings arise from Simon's longstanding interest in British urban scenery. He views areas of sprawl & decay not as eyesores but as subject matter to be explored. An accidental beauty occurs when the modern is adjoined by a crumbling past - a result of the ongoing process of manmade change & natural decline, with nature in control. He believes it possible to experience something eternal & mysterious by simply taking a stroll around a town or city, away from recognised attractions. To his eyes, everything - weeds, litter, brutalist architecture - can appear beautiful. Form is a secondary, surface concern. As well as recently exhibiting at Bath's Victoria Art Gallery and the RWA's open exhibitions, Simon has become increasingly interested in the impact he witnessed in viewers experiencing his artwork en-masse, and decided to explore this further with a solo show at the RWA's Fedden Gallery last March.
