Artist comment about this artwork: "An abstracted view of a castle and tree in the Luberon village of Lacoste in Provence".
Art by the Artist Gregg Simpson From Bowen Island, Canada

Born in Ottawa in 1947, Gregg Simpson grew up in the rainforest environment of the west coast. His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries in Canada, the U.S., Europe and South America and is included in over 100 private and public collections internationally. In 2012 and 2013 a retrospective of his work from 1970-’75 toured museums in Spain and Portugal. In May, 2000 he had a solo exhibition in a castle in Italy which became the subject of a BRAVO TV television documentary, A New Arcadia, The Art of Gregg Simpson:

Simpson works in the tradition of abstract surrealism. His paintings combine automatism with elements of landscape and the figure. They are improvised from simple charcoal outlines and then combined with the direct application of paint onto raw canvas. The meaning of the forms he creates changes with each viewer.

Born: Ottawa, 1947. Grew up on the west coast.
