Simon McWilliams 'Works On Paper'
Belfast Print Workshop Gallery 6-9pm 5th June 2014
"BPW is proud to present an exhibition of works on paper by Belfast artist Simon McWilliams. This is an opportunity to see another side of his work, and how a painter approaches printmaking.
Hot on the heels of his successful exhibition of large scale paintings at the Naughton Gallery at Queens University Belfast, these smaller and more affordable works on paper employ a variety of printmaking techniques. The imagery is a blend of the familiar themes running through his work with architectural and botanical forms appearing in colourful screen prints, dramatic linocuts and quiet etchings. Some are unique whilst others are multiples in a limited edition."
Simon McWilliams was born in Belfast in 1970. He studied painting at the University of Ulster and then at the Royal Academy Schools in London. He exhibits worldwide between the USA, Ireland and London and is represented in numerous public and private collections. And is based at Orchid Studios in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
