Simon Morrison-Deaker’s art is characterised by eighty year old fruit stall stencils, bold abstracted lines and muted primary colours. He paints a new kind of landscape from Central Otago to Northland with unabashed adoration for New Zealand’s past.
Simon paints images of the construction of the country: settlement themes, railways and cultural identities from the old roads that link his work to all of us. The abstracted landscapes in Simon’s work were the very recognisable repertoire that sold out in earlier shows in Queenstown, Auckland and other centers. Now, these landscapes combine and share exhibition spaces with his strongly composed realist images of crests, abstracted garden elements, native birds, utensils or muted wallpapers.
