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. The work is primarily layers of painting combined with collaged elements. However, I also used the decollage technique - cutting, tearing or sanding away parts of the built up surface image to reveal layers below. The artwork comes with a signed gold foil blocked certificate of authenticity (COA). The COA is provided to protect your investment and to protect the long term collectible value of your artwork. The unique design of the gold foil blocked seal confirms the COA is authentic and was provided by the artist Simon Kirk, and the related artwork is absolutely and unquestionably by the artist who has signed it.
