BIOGRAPHY
ARTIST: BRIAN SIMONS 1050
BANK ST.,
BORN: NIAGARA FALLS, ONT. VICTORIA,B.C.
V8S-4B4
ART EDUCATION: SELF-TAUGHT TEL: (250)598-
2892


Being a self-taught artist, I have derived much of my inspiration from the
\"GROUP OF SEVEN\", the French Impressionists, and the Writings of
Baha\'u\'lla\'h (Baha\'i Faith).

My family and I moved to Vancouver Island in 1988 from Alberta where I
first began to paint (approx. 15yrs.ago).

With increasing confirmation and success in my work since that time,I
decided in June 1993 to persue painting on a full-time basis.

During the last few years, I have had many successes and completed several
commission pieces for architects, a television production company, and
numerous corporate and private collectors. Aside from my home, my work can
be seen at:




TIMM\'S GALLERY, COURTENAY, B.C.

WILLOW GALLERY, TORONTO

GARLIC ROSE RESTAURANT, VICTORIA, B.C.

SOUTHSHORE GALLERY, SOOKE, B.C.

AULD KIRK GALLERY, SHAWNIGAN LAKE, B.C.

ARTIST\'S STATEMENT:

\"IN MY WORK, I ATTEMPT TO EXPRESS SOMETHING MORE THAN THE PHYSICAL ASPECTS
OF THE SUBJECT. IT IS NOT MY INTENT TO PORTRAY ACCURATELY WHAT I SEE, BUT
RATHER TO ALLOW WHAT I SEE TO SHOW ITSELF TO ME. MY PART IS TO FREELY AND
JOYOUSLY PAINT AND LET THE RESULTS TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES. I FEEL THAT
SUCCESSFUL PAINTING JUST HAPPENS AND THE END RESULT CANNOT BE ANTICIPATED
AND IS THEREFORE VERY SURPRISING TO THE PAINTER. THE MORE A PAINTER CAN
\"NOT PAINT\" SO TO SPEAK, THE MORE SPACE BECOMES AVAILABLE FOR THIS
COMMUNICATION TO HAPPEN. IT IS A KIND OF EFFORTLESS ACCOMPLISHMENT WHOSE
SUCCESS IS NOT MEASURED BY THE WORK ITSELF, BUT RATHER IN WHAT IS STIRRED
OR EVOKED IN THE VIEWER. POSSIBLY, THE REAL FRUIT OF PAINTING OR ART, IS
THAT IT HAS THE POWER TO AWAKEN THE SLEEPING ARTIST WITHIN EACH OF US,
CREATING NEW POSSIBILITIES FOR SEEING AND ENLARGING OUR CAPACITY TO
APPRECIATE THE BEAUTY WHICH SURROUNDS US.\"
