Since completing his MFA from Newcastle University in northeast England, painter Simon Andrew has exhibited his richly textured and emotive landscapes in 27 solo shows in the UK and Canada. He has received two Ontario Arts Council awards and has won landscape competitions including the Laing National Landscape Competition and the Lawrence Atwell Award both in the UK. He received first prize in Exposures, an exhibition judged by public museum curators in Canada.
Andrew's work is held in corporate and private collections including that of actor Mel Gibson, Fidelity Investment, Glaxo Wellcome and Her Majesty The Queen in Right. His work was featured on the album cover of Day for Night by the Juno award winning Canadian band Tragically Hip.
"When painting, I concern myself with colour relationships, compositional structures and the physicality of the paint. I consider ‘subject’ the framework on which I hang the paint. My work is as much about the medium as the message... My paintings are a distilling process. They are often primed with an emotional charge, triggered by an event or a place. The intention is that they should conclude as authentic reconstructed experience."
