Simon Garrett Biography

A graduate of the Slade School, Simon Garrett's early works were influenced by Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Beuys and Marcel Broodthaers, but he has gone on to develop his own non-referential form of expression.

His passionate and long standing research into the philosophy of art has led him to believe that unencumbered forms can provide links to the deeper experience of humanity.

Only superficially abstract, while his paintings use neither found-object nor subject matter, they are not entirely subjectless, but are intended as representations of non-literal realities.

Simon lives and works in rural isolation in Wales, surrounded by chaotic and rampant natural forces, together with his wife and their three children.
