Simon Mcintyre: The View From Here - Art Collector

Courtesy: the artist and Tim Melville Gallery

Simon McIntyre has been described as having “the reductive sensibility of a minimalist but not the hard edges - the consciousness of expressionism but not the angst”. His paintings use fugitive visual elements – reflections on windows, shadows on tiles – to inspire motifs that hover and shimmer above washes of subtly layered colour.

They can be read as purely abstract but it is their connection to the real that sets up their emotional resonance - and although a viewer might be drawn to their perfect compositional balance it is the subtle flaws and blemishes that hold the attention.
