Archive > Elizabeth: Simon Duiker

Simon is a mixed media artist with a broad range of influences, including eco - art , magic realism and surrealism. His subjects are drawn from the natural world, and reflect our connection with the Earth.

Elizabeth is first and foremost the name of Simon's model. It is the name of the polluted industrial town where he was born and is the name of our monarch under Colonial rule. Elizabeth is a series of paintings about the pollution and decay of our once pristine planet. This entropy is personified by the feminine figure 'Elizabeth'. Our fate and the fate of the earth are linked and we are being forced daily to accept this dystopia as our inescapable reality.

Exhibition runs from 6pm, 4 March - 17 March 2016
