It looks like everything about space I cannot explain. Stephen Hawking
Simon Kenny is a multi award winning artist, celebrated nationally and internationally for his vibrant, expressive paintings. His style is best described as lyrical abstraction; characterised as a radical Turner, in recent press coverage he has attracted significant attention for his growing collection of colour burst paintings.
Simons fascination with the world around him clearly manifests itself through his work, yet no piece is ever site specific. His aim is for the viewer to connect personally with each composition to be reminded of a place they once knew, or visited by an unexpected moment of emotion.
Born in 1976 in Dublin, Ireland, Simon discovered his love of art at a young age. Following his natural artistic instinct he acquired techniques and preferences which he relates through his work, encompassing brush and palette knife work, subtle under-painting and graduating alterations in colour.
Dramatic, atmospheric and totally captivating, Simons dynamic abstracts are widely collected by both private and corporate clients located around the globe, and he has a huge collector base in the USA. His work has appeared in many prestigious exhibitions and galleries including the Saatchi Gallery,
My personality is a big part of what I paint. I do become incredibly emotionally connected to my work, almost treating it as though its a living thing. My mood plays a part in the colours I choose, or the way I use my brushes and knives, and it can certainly affect direction of the work; thats what makes it so special to me.
