About Simon Kirk

 
 
  • Biography
    Since beginning his career in 2007, works by Simon Kirk have proved a great investment and are increasingly sought after by art collectors, notably in America, Dubai and Continental Europe. He exhibited and sold at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2010, 2013 and 2015. He is a resident artist with the Turner | Barnes | Gallery and his work is regularly exhibited as part of their collections for the Hong Kong, Singapore and London Affordable Art Fairs. He has had solo exhibitions in France, Denmark and the USA.

    He free associates images and cut-up text to evoke haiku and the allusions that help us view everyday life with fresh eyes. His work is primarily layers of painting combined with collaged elements. However, he also uses the decollage technique - cutting, tearing or sanding away parts of the built up surface image to reveal layers below.

    Venue: Kunst I Slusen - Art Hvide Sande, Hvide Sande, Denmark

    "Eight Leigh on Sea artists were the focal exhibitors at a prestigious Danish arts event this year. The annual Kunst i Slusen ART HVIDE SANDE is now in its seventh year and attracts between four and six thousand visitors over two weeks.

    Local artists John Adams, Sharon Byrne, Karen Christensen, Simon Feather, Simon Kirk, Lester Mills, Tricia North and Sandra Wray were all chosen to stage the main art exhibition at the event in the harbour town of Hvide Sande on the west coast of Denmark. The exhibition was curated by Leigh artist and Art Trail regular Andrew Haines, who now lives in Hvide Sande.

    The main exhibition took place in a 120 metre long machine room, locally called the ‘Slusen’, hence ‘Kunst i Slusen’ or ‘Art in the Slusen’. This machine room runs under the bridge linking the north and south sides of Hvide Sande and controls the flow of water between the surrounding North Sea and Ringkøbing fjord. This unique industrial space complete with working machinery is not normally open to the public and attracts many visitors itself. In addition to the main exhibition the artists also organised a number of events outside – ‘happenings’, installations, art workshops and interactive public art projects."

Event: Kunst I Slusen - Art Hvide Sande 2012

Dates: July 29, 2012 - Aug. 10, 2012

Venue: Kunst I Slusen - Art Hvide Sande, Hvide Sande, Denmark

"Eight Leigh on Sea artists were the focal exhibitors at a prestigious Danish arts event this year. The annual Kunst i Slusen ART HVIDE SANDE is now in its seventh year and attracts between four and six thousand visitors over two weeks.

Local artists John Adams, Sharon Byrne, Karen Christensen, Simon Feather, Simon Kirk, Lester Mills, Tricia North and Sandra Wray were all chosen to stage the main art exhibition at the event in the harbour town of Hvide Sande on the west coast of Denmark. The exhibition was curated by Leigh artist and Art Trail regular Andrew Haines, who now lives in Hvide Sande.

The main exhibition took place in a 120 metre long machine room, locally called the ‘Slusen’, hence ‘Kunst i Slusen’ or ‘Art in the Slusen’. This machine room runs under the bridge linking the north and south sides of Hvide Sande and controls the flow of water between the surrounding North Sea and Ringkøbing fjord. This unique industrial space complete with working machinery is not normally open to the public and attracts many visitors itself. In addition to the main exhibition the artists also organised a number of events outside – ‘happenings’, installations, art workshops and interactive public art projects."

Biography

Since beginning his career in 2007, works by Simon Kirk have proved a great investment and are increasingly sought after by art collectors, notably in America, Dubai and Continental Europe. He exhibited and sold at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2010, 2013 and 2015. He is a resident artist with the Turner | Barnes | Gallery and his work is regularly exhibited as part of their collections for the Hong Kong, Singapore and London Affordable Art Fairs. He has had solo exhibitions in France, Denmark and the USA.

He free associates images and cut-up text to evoke haiku and the allusions that help us view everyday life with fresh eyes. His work is primarily layers of painting combined with collaged elements. However, he also uses the decollage technique - cutting, tearing or sanding away parts of the built up surface image to reveal layers below.
