Simon Pooley


Born in Macclesfield in Cheshire in 1955, Simon Pooley trained as an architect in London, qualifying in1980.
He practised in Sheffield for twelve years before moving, with his wife Hilary, to Cornwall in 1992 to paint full-time.

He works from a studio near Lamorna in Penwith just 8 miles from Lands End and shows in several galleries in
the UK including London and several Cornish galleries.
He has also shown abroad. He is a member of the
Newlyn Society of Artists,

“I seem to have had a pencil in my hand for most of my
life and I can recall my response to a place or object more
easily through the experience of having drawn it. But for
me, studio work is about memory, and memories, with the
passage of time, are susceptible to unconscious editing.
In the studio these submerged experiences, which have
been subjected to the alchemical process of distillation,
become small internal impulses that are sometimes quiet,
sometimes still, but may, at another time, rush to the s
urface and cry out for attention and creative expression.
This is the moment for me to begin work. Using line and
colour to create a psychological space for my subject I
continually overpaint, improvising as I go, responding to
the process of the painting’s own evolution.”
