Simon Wilde

Simon Wilde grew up in Cochester, Essex and worked for several art galleries in the U.S.A. and as an assistant to the artist Rammellzee (c1961-27 June 2010) and in the 1980s Simon started to paint in a back room of the Barbara Braathen Gallery in New York. He later studied at the New York Studio School and Falmouth College of Art and later lived and worked in Cornwall before moving back to East Anglia in 2018. In Wilde’s work layers of paint are built up and scratched back creating a visual archaeology of colour and form which acts as a gateway to apparition. Mystical figures and magical landscapes emerge from the paint encouraging a discourse with the viewer. Simon is a member of Easterly Artists and has work at the Grapevine Contemporary, Norfolk; The Art Gallery, Lowestoft and the Ferini Art Gallery, Pakenham and has exhibited in New York, London, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Manchester, Cornwall, Devon, Norfolk and Suffolk.
