About

We are excited to announce a two site solo exhibition of new paintings and prints by artist Henrik Simonsen at our Newcastle gallery and at The Customs House in South Shields. This exhibition will run from 30 September - 13 November where collectors can buy original art by Henrik Simonsen at both sites. Danish artist Henrik Simonsen engages with a Western tradition of flower paintings and still life, approaching it in a contemporary way. His charcoal drawings and paintings depict unspoiled common field plants and flowers, rather than the cultivated blooms usually found in traditional flower paintings. Henrik Simonsen's Scandinavian background is stylistically evident in his economy of colour and line, and his use of space and light, along with the dominance of nature as the subject matter. Although delicately beautiful, these botanical observations are more than merely decorative, taking on an intimately personal element through their skilful, almost spontaneous execution. Simonsen currently lives and works in the UK and has exhibited internationally in locations including London, New York, Copenhagan and Venice. Please contact enquiries@opus-art.com for further information about this new exhibition.
