Details

Towner presents an exhibition of new and recent works by Simon Ling, the artist’s first solo presentation in a UK public institution. Simon Ling’s paintings draw our attention to the way our experience of the world is created through a sustained attentiveness to how we look at it.

His paintings are generally made both ‘en-plein air’, where his subject matter is found in nondescript urban or rural landscapes, or in his studio where he constructs tableaux of everyday objects. Across all his paintings, as in his most recent work – a series of paintings made from observing an arrangement of logs – we see an intense engagement with perception and the painting process where his concern is to register an emotional equivalence of the visual world accessed and described through intense scrutiny.

These paintings emphasise not just what an object looks like or what its material qualities might be, but the dynamic process of seeing, remembering and the act of painting.
