Shop item of the week is this gorgeous oil painting on wood panel by Simon McAuley. ‘Untitled 2013’ measures 26 x26 cm and can be purchased from our gallery shop for £200.00. It mimics the look of a stretched canvas piece as the artist has encased the wood panel surface with 5cm deep white wood edges. It is a beautiful rendition of a hazy landscape. Coming in and out of focus continually the eye relaxes and gives in to the blurred technique in which the paint has been applied.
McAuley currently has a solo show in our Gallery 2, and several of his newest paintings can be seen here until the 22nd of May. For more information about the exhibition, ‘Strange quarks’ follow this link. There is also more information about Simon and his practice on his artists’ page. Simon is very well versed in both painting and photography, which is evidenced in the plethora and quality of work he continues to produce.
