Simon Barlow

My journey through a life in art has taken me to many places, literally and figuratively. From fine bird illustrations from my origins in Africa, to Australia, and large botanical oil and acrylic paintings on canvas. The constant for those last 30 or so years has been a profound fascination with the natural form, either fauna or flora. An instinctive, and growing wonder with the intrinsic artistic design apparent in animal or plant. Although my genre can be categorised as realistic, my paintings are an exercise in exploring and portraying the extraordinary and surreal in the subjects I choose. I approach the floral compositions as complex landscapes, rather than studies of arrangements. I am drawn spellbound into the multiple and varied colours, textures and structures that make up these compositions. Using dramatic lighting and a large format, and inspired by artists like the Baroque artist Caravaggio, my paintings express the wonder these extensions of the plant kingdom hold for me. The 'organs for reproduction' of plants, they sprout, bloom and die, representing the cycle of life and every earthly organism's mortality. They take on character, mood and expression, loved and admired by humanity throughout millennia. I have found my home, after years of wandering, in the pure and honest expression of beauty.
