Under Their Skin

A Painters’ Collective

Simon Klein is participating in an exhibition by a group of 26 painters brought together through the Turps Correspondence Course, showing recent work in three, two-week shows running from 2 September to 15 October 2023.

What lies beneath the skin of an artwork? What makes an artwork get under OUR skin?

This show invites you to consider what goes on beneath. The life of the work in this exhibition lies as much in the viewers’ perception of them as it does in the minds of the artists who created them …

The painting is not on a surface, but on a plane which is imagined. It moves in a mind. It is not there physically at all. It is an illusion, a piece of magic, so that what you see is not what you see.
