John Simpson

This is one of those artists that throw me a bit. It just shows the cross over of ideas that are similar to my own, and to what I would aspire to do. How annoying. I love his work, I wish it was mine!

'Drawing has always been the most important element in John Simpson's work, which relates to the graphic tradition of artists like Edvard Munch and Odilon Redon. His work references the world of folk tale and myth, exploring the relationship between the human figure and animal forms. Often introducing contemporary elements to these classical subjects, John Simpson's imagery seems caught somewhere between childhood imagination and adult reasoning. His ability to capture the physical an psychological nature of these creatures can both disquiet and enchant in equal measure.'
