About the Item

Simon Casson’s paintings are singular statements of pure uniqueness. Their contemporary abstraction inflicts its imprint upon the often capriccio paintings, through predatory slabs of textural pigment. Casson playfully combines pre-existing elements from the entire oeuvre of visual art to discover an unprecedented form of History Painting. Decollage and calligraphic mark-making marry to form a fall of drapery, whilst an iconic centralized classical form fights for supremacy with a cold formalized, almost emotionally bereft still life. The paintings are a potent mix of carnal, primitive paint application, reminiscent of a De Kooning, stirred together on the canvas with the academic technical skill of a Titian.
