Stephen Simpson

Divine Light Exhibition

Here at Castle Galleries Newcastle we are proud to introduce to you Stephen Simpson
and his incredable new mixed media originals.

Original Mixed Media
76cm by 76cm

Midnight Glow I
Original Mixed Media
50.5cm by 50.5cm

Stephen starts a piece by buildig up the pieces in a number of layers of relief texture and oil paint glazes, moving the paint around using a combination of palette knife, brush and old rags to create earthy effects. By using heavy texture his work has an almost sculptural quality with a tactile surface.

Original Mixed Media
91.5cm by 91.5cm

Scorched Ember
Original Mixed Media
61cm by 61cm

The combination of rough and smooth mediums coinciding with ever changing light creates the illusion of movement in the pieces. As a finishing touch he adds a high gloss coat which makes Stephen's mixed media pieces dazzle in the light and look almost glass like. 

Piercing Light
Original Mixed Media

 The images above by no stretch of the imagination, do these pieces justice; so why not pop into the gallery to appreciate his unusual technique in the flesh.
