Chris Sims

Since 2001, I have been creating works using colour, instinctive mark making, complimented by a strong sense of composition to evoke or capture a moment in time.

Pursuing this practice involves a variety of media, print making, painting, drawing and also digital processes. Although not directly relating to a scene or place, much of my work is rooted in the landscape, rural or urban.  The attraction to the physical nature of my view inspires dynamic compositions, utilising instinctive mark making and abstract shapes, evoking and capturing an emotive place. Applying a dynamic and energetic, intuitive, approach, layering and adjusting, using inks, paints, charcoal and other mediums, this working process aims to reach a point when a balanced composition emerges.
