Simon Kirk - Bonnyville
10 x 15 cm
My work draws from images and text collected in my sketchbooks which through free association create playful abstractions. I am interested in narrative, specifically the ambiguous subjective ‘hidden’ narrative where the 'story' remains oblique or partial. The work is multidirectional and open ended. Meaning is inherent but impossible to pin down precisely. The work is primarily layers of painting combined with collaged elements. However, I also use the decollage technique - cutting, tearing or sanding away parts of the built up surface image to reveal layers below. The artwork is sold framed: Black frame, framed dimensions 22 × 27 × 4 cm.
