Oil on Canvas
Simon Kenny is a multi award winning artist, celebrated nationally and internationally for his vibrant, expressive paintings. His style is best described as 'lyrical abstraction', and his technique encompasses brush and palette knife work, subtle under-painting and graduating alterations in colour. Characterised as a 'radical impressionist', in recent press coverage he has attracted significant attention for his growing collection of colour burst oil paintings.
Simon's fascination with the world around him clearly manifests itself through his work, yet no piece is ever site specific. His aim is for the viewer to connect personally with each composition - to be reminded of a place they once knew, or visited by an unexpected moment of emotion.
Born in 1976 in Dublin, Ireland, Simon discovered his love of art at a young age. Following his natural artistic instinct he acquired techniques and preferences which he relates through his work. His personality is a big part of his work, and as he starts on a new painting he embarks on a personal journey through a host of emotions, all carefully considered and expressed through both colour and form, offering the viewer a direct visual connection to his mind set.
Dramatic, atmospheric and totally captivating, Simon's dynamic abstracts are widely collected by both private and corporate clients, located around the globe, and has appeared in many prestigious exhibitions and galleries.
