Chris Sims

Over the past 10 years Chris has been creating abstract works using colour, instinctive mark making and his strong sense of composition to evoke or capture a moment in time.

 

Pursuing this practice involves a variety of media, printmaking, painting drawing and digital processes. Although not directly relating to a scene or place much of his work is rooted in the landscape, rural or urban.His attraction to the physical nature of his view inspires dynamic compositions utilising instinctive mark making and abstracted shapes, evoking and capturing an emotive place. Applying a dynamic and energetic intuitive approach, layering and adjusting, using inks, paints, charcoal and other mediums this working process aims to reach a point where a balanced composition emerges.

Having studied printmaking at Wolverhampton University in the early 80’s through an illustration option on a Graphic Design Degree, Chris has since worked as a graphic designer and illustrator. Becoming freelance in 2001 enabled him to spend more time pursuing his interest in fine art, initially through a part time printmaking workshop at Amersham College and more recently in his  garden studio.
