Simon Kirk


Has exhibited and sold at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. He shows predominantly in the South East of England, but in May of this year he had a successful solo exhibition in Denmark, The first such show outside of the UK.


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 - glimpses of an altogether different narrative order; where the 'story' remains oblique or partial, ambiguous and undeclared. The work is multidirectional and open ended. Meaning is inherent but impossible to pin down precisely.

Perhaps to describe best how I see it would be to say that I play the role of set designer. I create the environment and provide the players. Elements of text where present act as set direction. The viewer becomes the director, who uses all the information before them to create the play. That the resulting story could be different for everyone is something that fascinates me.
