Simon's paintings arise from his longstanding interest in British urban scenery. He views areas of sprawl & decay not as eyesores but as subject matter to be explored. It is 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 surface concern.
