Royal Academy Summer Show 2023

Simon Klein’s oil pastel Waterfall was selected for the 2023 Royal Academy Summer Show.

In recent years my work has primarily conveyed figures; mostly a man and a woman together, I try to represent movement between them, a communion and a desire that are represented both visually and in a relational way between characters sharing a space. The resulting shapes and forms become entangled in a visual narrative.
