Simon Laurie

Simon Laurie's personal iconography has evolved out of the landscapes and everyday objects of his native rural Scotland: lanes and footpaths, the peaked roofs of oast-houses, hay-ricks and agricultural implements. Blocked out in bright acrylics – the flatness of their shapes reminiscent of collage – these basic forms, apparently simple yet charged with meaning, achieve balance within rhythmic, deeply satisfying compositions. Pattern-making – a fundamental artistic impulse – transcends anecdote, ensuring that these works have a relevance much wider than the specific events that inspired them.

Simon is a graduate of the Glasgow School of Art. He has had several one-man shows in London and in Scotland and his work is held by well-known collections including the Contemporary Arts Society, London and the Aberdeen Art Gallery. He was awarded a member of the Royal Glasgow Institute in November 2000.
