Simon Callery

 Fold Gallery

He is a painter practising in the expanded field. His work was large in scale, draping, colorful, and textured. This collection of works were developed while he worked alongside archaeologists excavating a site in North Wales. I can see in his work the texture is reminiscent of dug earth. The crimson pigment used in some of the works was extremely rich. I like his work because of the unconventional way he uses canvas and paint and his different methodologies and processes of making. I will attempt to explore various means of releasing my paintings from the usual rectangular framework and exploring my own methodologies to engage my work
