Simon Howden Artist

'Studio view - Sunset over Salisbury Cathedral'
Oil on Canvas - 20x16





Living and working in Salisbury and the surrounding area, Simon's works are
heavily influenced by the Wiltshire & Hampshire landscape. Simon works in both
oils and watercolours in a variety of styles from loose abstract to photo-realism
with a rich and a vibrant colour pallet, with the addition of sensitive mark making.

His recent body of works in oil on canvas use a rich impasto colour application
by the sole use of a pallet knife. This collection ventures into suggestions of
landscape with additional elements of nature - ‘geometric abstraction’.
Each piece, though initially planned, takes on an organic flow of its own which
can direct the work in a totally different direction dependent upon the results.

Having always had a graphic and illustrative approach to his work, linocut
printing seemed a natural medium for him to revisit and explore further, so in
addition to his oil on canvas works Simon also creates limited edition
LINO PRINTS.

Simon regularly hold exhibitions of his work, locally and nationally, and sells a
selection of his works as open editions through a Fine Art Agency available as
Canvas and Giclee Prints.
