Gary Simon, Artist

Contemporary Impressionism

Home: Welcome

My Approach

When one views my art they are invited to discover many things, ask questions and simply enjoy the energy. My goal as an artist in each painting is to capture the attention of viewer with my emotion I give to each painting.  Having one look continuously at the canvass while sparking their emotion is core goal I have.  I use a blend of techniques a little different in each piece to place vibrant color and texture into motion.
Whether I am painting in acrylic or oil, I use paint straight out of the tube and do my color mixing and blending in the moment on the canvass. I find this really captures my energy and reveals spontaneity. You will find a combination of brush, knife and finger painting in my work as I typically want to translate my emotions quickly to balance energy with composition.
I describe my artwork as Contemporary Impressionism.
