SUCCESSIVE APPROXIMATIONS The Paintings of Simon Garden Simon Garden, born in 1960, studied at Exeter College of Art & Design and has been a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy and the Royal West of England Academy. His fantastical works are created almost entirely in oil on board, exciting and original, they represent an extraordinary imagination. Garden primes his surfaces with a deep and pronounced tooth, which gives his paintings their furrowed look. His paintings are superbly direct in their ability to convey humorous and often meaningful imagery – this is, in part, owed to the artist’s imaginative approach to the work’s creation – allowing the wet paint to pool into amorphous shapes that suggest the subject to come. Thompson’s Gallery London welcomes Simon Garden back for his sixth exhibition with the gallery, he has produced a fantastic body of work please do come and see!
