25th May – 2nd June 2024 Creative Kernow

Simon Pooley


Exhibition of paintings

Simon’s large, light and airy studio with views of the sea, is 300 metres from the coast path a couple of miles west of Lamorna Cove. Contemporary landscape paintings that are inspired by this unique location which is battered by wind and sea, will be exhibited in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Paintings that vary in size from 20cm to 100cm are priced from £150 -£2,500.

These paintings reflect his passion for the landscape of Penwith and his belief in the importance of drawing. His strong colour palette and his layered graphic marks are made to engage the viewer in the painting’s richness of surface. His compositions are both thoughtful and intuitive.

“The landscape of West Penwith was his inspiration, and remains so today, with Pooley painting it from a blend of memory and sketches made en plein air, fusing abstraction and figurative motifs to create works that are as enigmatic as they are alluring.” Alex Wade, journalist and author.
