Acrylics by Brian Simons

"Art takes nature as its model" - Aristotle

Brian Simons is a wonderful local artist. His paintings capture the beauty which surrounds us in everyday life... from a bustling downtown street to ocean waves lapping at a sandy beach.

"The more a painter can 'not paint' so to speak, the more space becomes available for this to communication to happen. It then becomes an effortless accomplishment whose success is not measured by the work itself, but rather in what is stirred or evoked in the viewer."

His work is represented by numerous galleries all over Canada. Here is a sampling of some of his beautiful acrylic paintings...
